This fleece is dirty, with dirty tips and moderate VM. I HIGHLY recommend a cold soak before scouring – you will be happy if you do. These locks are SO crimpy and so much softer than many Shropshire fleeces I’ve encountered – it’s well worth that soak for sturdy – yet snuggly – socks and hats and cowls. For a down breed, it’s definitely next to skin comfy. I would love this fleece to have more staple length – but I don’t see this as a detriment because I want to card this, get that loft and air into the yarn and be extra warm.
Ave staple 2″
