Here are the fleeces from this year’s fair. We may add more to this list, but this is what I have labeled and photographed 😊

Rich dark color all the way through. Classic Corriedale crimp. Strong fiber with lots of luster and shine. Super hard to photograph.

Classic Cormo. Super fine, tight crimp, bright white, and amazing luster.
#3 – Piper – $50
Rambouillet X Columbia/Hampshire Down. This ewe has a uniform fleece with good crimp and planter of luster. She was coated but shearing wasn’t until after breakup so there is a little mud on the tips.

Columbia/Hampshire Down. One of my favorite sheep and he grows a great fleece. Airy and fluffy with good amount of shine. Strong yet soft.
#5 – Shirley – $30
Rambouillet X Cormo/Icelandic. Shirley was not coated so there is some VM in this one. Nice fiber, good crimp, decent staple length. After a little cleaning this will spin up great.
