       R-07
2021 fleece

This lovely fleece is from wether R-07 whose life is an easy one, eating and getting scratches.  Wethers have no reproductive demands, so spend their time creating wonderful fleece.  R-07 is a black badger, with fleece color ranging from medium gray to almost black.  His staple length is 3-6”, with nice crimp and luster.  His fleece has been heavily skirted, so there is minimal VM.  3 lbs  $75 plus shipping from 64040.

A

This ewe  politely kept her coat on, so there is minimal VM. Aunt Bee lambed for the first time this Spring, producing a bouncy, black ram lamb.   This was her first breeding because I thought she was a little wild and not suitable for our breeding program.  Last year, she snuck up to the barn with the pregnant girls and stayed for the season.  She turned out to be a great auntie for the lambs, letting them nap with her and climb on her when they were feeling rambunctious Bee’s fleece is black badger like many of her sisters and cousins, a lovely silver to black color. Super soft, lots of crimp. Staple length is 4-5 inches, fleece weight 3 lb. 6 oz.   $84 plus shipping from 64040.
