Description

This fleece, from arguably one of the most primitive of sheep breeds, is dark brown in colour with a small white patch. It is soft and fluffy and has a typically short staple length. Despite coming from a male sheep, it doesn't have the distinctive "tup smell" that you might expect. The fleece comes in pieces as it was partly sheared and partly rooed (plucked) and also includes some belly wool as it is such a small fleece. Throughly skirted and most VM has been removed.

Description
We bought Cardamom (or Cardi as we call him) as a lamb in 2019 and although he's still small, he is growing well and has proven he is up to the job!
