Description

This unusual cross-breed fleece is very much like a Boreray fleece but perhaps with a slightly longer staple and a thicker undercoat. The staple has nice wavy tips, very much like her North Ronaldsay sire.

V.M.
Moderate. We have picked out as much as we could within the time available, but she was obviously choosing to sleep in the mossiest corner of the field!
Notes
This is an interesting fleece although it has a bit more VM in than we'd normally like and is quite grubby, though it should wash fine.
