Description

Rae's fleece has a lovely glossy shine. It's a beautiful fleece and has nice wavy tips. It's reasonably soft and the colour varies from cream through to white and brown. It comes in pieces at it was "rooed" rather than sheared, because she started to lose her fleece quite early on in the year (April).
