Premium Fleeces For Sale

We have excellent clean raw fleeces in stock. The fleeces are meticulously skirted of tags, belly and any vegetative matter. The fleece is lustrous and has a dual coat that can either be easily separated or spun with both coats together. The outer coat is similar to mohair and the inner coat is similar to cashmere. We will send info on spinning the fleece with the order if you request it.

What our customers say.....

"We are ecstatic about the fleece you sent us for Retreat! it is so wonderful we decided to leave it intact so everyone can see the quality and cleanliness before we divvy it up." W.C. Indiana

"I knew that they would be beautiful, but I wasn't prepared for breath taking. Oh my!!  Besides the great handle, the colors are like no gray/moorit that I've yet come across. Thank you so very much. I feel very fortunate to be able to acquire your fleeces. Yum!! P.J. Indiana  

"My fleece arrived yesterday. Superb! It will give just the tweedy look that my husband was after. The quality of your fleeces is amazing, and they are so CLEAN. I was up to my elbows in my little lamb fleece last night, and there wasn't any portion I didn't consider first quality. Thanks very much!" D.K. Washington

"Thanks again for reserving the fleeces. I'm hooked ever since I bought your fleeces last year. 
They are a joy to card and spin!" C.K. Maryland 

"Susan, we are impressed with how well the fleeces are skirted, and how 
clean they are
overall. They are beautiful."  E&N in IL

    "Just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the Icelandic fleece I purchased from you.  It is superb - beautifully clean, just as you described on your listing regarding fineness of tog and thel, and better than I was hoping for.  The fleece is my personal reward for getting all the work done to arrange and hold an education conference in Washington, DC.  So, as soon as I get back next week, I'm digging into that scrumptious fleece.  Thanks again.  It has been a pleasure doing business with you. (I'm keeping my eye on your listings. Who knows what else will tempt me?)"   L.H. in NC

"Honestly, your fleeces are the cleanest, most accurately described fleeces I have found. I would have to say that your "word pictures" are the next best thing to a digital photo, and with my monitor, possibly better." D.B. in IN
