Fleece Processing Prior to Shipment
Withing a few days
after shearing, each of the fleeces is heavily skirted to remove any wool containing unwanted contaminants. For example,
in 2007 we skirted 140 pounds of rejected wool off of our total gross fleece weight of 297 pounds - almost half of our wool!
After heavy skirting, a fleece is hand-picked to remove any small contaminant pieces that may be visible, resulting
in a clean, vegetable-matter-free, beautiful fleece, ready for photographing, weighing, and boxing for shipment. Sample
staples for each fleece are randomly selected, tested for strength, and then photographed with the identification card for
that fleece and a ruler. Finally, the fleece is folded and rolled, skin side out, placed in a plastic bag and stored
in a temperature controlled climate. Just prior to shipping, the bag is sealed, boxed, and addressed, ready for transportation
to you! Please feel free to contact us with any questions or coments - we are happy to hear from you!
