We shear our sheep every late February or early March, just as we take them off the snow and bring them into the barn. The resulting wool is clean and free of chaff. It comes as it is just off the sheep with all its natural lanolin. The fiber length is 2 to 4 inches. It is high in luster and of a medium grade. The raw wool we sell in 2 lb bags. Price includes shipping for all orders over $25.
