Jacob Fleeces

 

Jacob wool is a medium grade (24-33 microns, Bradford count 44-56s, demi-luster), with an open character, a soft springy handle and little or no kemp, or britchyness. Staple length is 3" - 7" and fleeces weigh from 3-6 lbs with little grease and a high yield.  When the colors from one fleece are separated it can yield three colors - creamy white, brown/grey and brown/black. 

The following fleeces have been well skirted and are ready for sale.  For more information or for a sample contact karen@bideaweefarm.com

Navajo-Churro Fleeces

Navajo-Churro wool comes in a wide range of natural colors (for a list of Navajo-Churro colors & patterns click here), is classified as coarse and is composed of three distinct types of fiber: 1) Inner Coat: wool fibers ranging from 10-35 microns, comprising 80% of the fleece, 2) Outer Coat: hair fibers measuring 35+ microns, comprising 10-20% of the fleece, 3) Kemp: short opaque fibers of 65+ microns, not to exceed 5% of the fleece. The fleece is open with no defined crimp and should be lustrous with a silky hand. It is high yielding with a low grease content.

The following fleeces have been well skirted and are ready for sale.  For more information or for a sample contact karen@bideaweefarm.com  Note: photos are thumbnails - clicking on them will bring up larger versions.
