Gulf Coast Native Lamb - Washed Fleece
Weight: Approx. 2oz/56g
Materials: Dolores of Summer Fields Fibers
Unstretched Staple Length: 4"
Gulf Coast Native is a Critical status endangered heritage breed. I'm so happy to carry this breed's fleece to help promote their expansion. They are notable for being parasite resistant and hoof hardy. They are one of the few breeds that has an easy time thriving in southern U.S. climates. I find their wool to be exceptionally soft and lofty with a wonderful crimp and elasticity. It might benefit from a wonderful hand combing session!
We cannot guarantee a color ratio from washed fleeces. Vegetation (this can include burrs, so be careful!) will and nepps could be present. This listing is for just washed farm fleece that will need to be prepared before spinning. We source clean and strong luxury wools from a variety of small farms.
