Shearing Day.

June 13, 2016

Our sheep will be sheared this Thursday and we will have fleeces for sale. If anyone is interested in witnessing this it will start at 8:00am. If you show up you will be asked to help move sheep around.
This is unwashed wool from Gulf Coast Native Sheep. It came straight off the sheep, into the bag. There will be vegetative matter in the wool. The sheep were not coated and they browsed in the woods at times. These sheep do not have facial or belly wool.
The fleeces weigh between 1 pounds and 4 pounds each. Fiber lengths vary. The price is $10 per pound. I will have some with me at the Eastside Farmers Market in Houston each Saturday until sold out. Customers have been spinners, bedding/pillow makers, and craftspersons.
I would prefer not to ship. I want people who know more than me to see the wool before purchasing it. All wool is from our flock here in Hempstead, Texas. Fiber lengths of spinning wool vary from 3″ to 5″.
