Romeldale - Washed Fleece
Weight: Approx. 2oz/56g
Materials: Blackie of Open Book Farms
Unstretched Staple Length: 3"
Romeldale is a wonderful fine wool breed developed here in the states from Romney and Rambouillet crosses. They produce a very gentle, soft fleece with a matte finish. They are listed as a threatened status on the Livestock Conservancy, so we are always thrilled to find flocks that maintain them! This particular fleece has an incredible range of silvers with gently weathered tips. Some of the tips are a little tender and may need some care during hand processing, but overall this fleece will be lovely to work with.

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.
A Note on Color: Our items are dyed with high quality acid dyes and rinsed clear, but you may experience some color bleed on the first hand wash as is normal. We also do our best to represent accurate color in our photographs, but all monitors are calibrated differently and may alter that.
Allergen Notice: Our home is smoke-free and cat-friendly. While they do not have access to the wools, we cannot guarantee every item is dander free, so please be aware if you have allergies. Working with raw fleece regularly may also mean hay allergies could be triggered. Allergies can be severe and your safety matters to us!
Vegetation Notice: Some items are hand processed with raw fleece from small farms. You might dig up plant matter, food, hay, and bedding in these items. We do our best to keep VM count as low as possible. These items will be notated as Farm Wools.
Shipping Overages: All excessive shipping overage will be refunded at time of shipping.
Shipping Times: We currently cannot guarantee shipping times with USPS being understandably backed up. Once the item is dropped off with the post office, it is out of our hands, but we will be monitoring every shipment.
