8oz of raw, coated Border Leicester fleece! This gorgeous long wool fleece comes from a small farm in Vermont. The fleece is unwashed, so the lock structure has been maintained throughout. I would recommend combing this fleece for best results. The last photo is what the fleece looks like washed, absolutely stunning!
Softness rating: Soft-Medium Staple length: 5" Spinning skill level: Beginner- The longer staple length of this fleece is perfect for beginners. It's not too long or too short and is slick enough that the fibers glide past each other smoothly.
To wash a raw fleece with medium amounts of grease I use Unicorn Power Scour per directions on the bottle, except with water that is 130F. I do 2, 20min washes with power scour, then do 1-2 washes with slightly cooler water and no soap until water is close to clear. To get my water to 130F, I heat it on the stove - time consuming, but worth it!
