"Marcus" - raw fleece (100% Shetland)


This is the 2021 fleece from my 100% Shetland ram, Marcus. A lovely moorit color, it is a darker brown at the base, with light creamy tips, and is super soft. The pictures don't do that rich chocolate color justice - please see the picture of Marcus himself for how deep of a brown the fleece will be! Marcus is a fine-fleece Shetland, with an exceptionally soft fleece.

Marcus was not coated, so there will be some vegetable matter in this raw fleece. I have skirted out all the icky bits, and you will receive all of the clean wool from neck, back, and sides. Some sections may be slightly matted, but were very easy to pull apart as I was skirting! I have tumbled this fleece once, and will put it back in the fiber tumbler before sending it to remove as much VM as possible. There may be a few burrs in this fleece - I went over it very carefully to check (and will do so again before I send your order!). I'm happy to answer any questions you have about this fleece.

Weight: 3 pounds 3 ounces

Average staple length is around 2.5-3.5" (some longer, some shorter sections)

This fleece is SE2SE eligible - please write me a note so I can include your sticker.
