Softer East Friesian/Romney/Coopworth - Washed Fleece
Weight: Approx. 2oz/56g
Materials: Trinity of Open Book Farms
Unstretched Staple Length: 4"
We have two ladies of this cross from Open Book Farms. Trinity tends more towards a medium-soft feel wool and both have a slight yolk staining towards the tips that will lend your yarn a warmth if left bare. They make excellent dye candidates!
East Friesian, of which half their cross is made of, grow a medium fleece with a gentle handle. A really nice all-purpose wool with a hefty staple. The Romney and Coopworth are 1/4 each in these crosses and I don't see any significant characteristics for either breed here, but I'm sure they've done some influence.
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.
