Our sheep are Gulf Coast Sheep.
Our fleeces weigh from 2-4 pounds per ewe. According to the breed webpage: “the average fiber diameter is 26-32 microns. Spinning count is 48-58. Gulf Coast fleeces are usually soft, open, low grease, wavy to crimpy and 2.5 to 4.0 inches staple length. This makes them suitable for many uses. Hand spinners say it is a delight to select fleeces for projects they have planned. It makes great fabric, blankets or knitted projects (sweaters, ect.) since it is not harsh to the skin. It also felts really well for making hats or felt pieces for sewing.”
We sell raw, lightly skirted wool for $10.00 per pound.
Shipping is $20.00 for up to 4 pounds
Pickup can be arranged at the farm or at our Saturday morning farmers market in Houston
We are members of the Livestock Conservancy’s Shave ’em to Save ’em program.
