2021 Boreray Fleece from Gaynor

Price
£7.20
Description

This is a typical "very mature" Boreray fleece! Gaynor is 12 years old this year. It is quite hairy although there is a finer soft undercoat. Gaynor had lost most of her fleece in the field this year so it's quite a small fleece. What we did get is in lots of pieces but there is minimal vegetative material despite this.

Notes
Gaynor did not have lambs in 2021 so this is probably why she started to shed her fleece very early on in the year.
