8oz of raw, coated Cormo fleece! This fleece is from a coated flock in Wisconsin and is exceptional. There's almost no VM throughout and the dark chocolate color is perfect for a natural colored garment. I still ship these fleeces to New England because I haven't found another breeder with fleeces as fine as this shepherdess's.
Softness rating: Very Soft Staple length: 4" Spinning skill level: Intermediate- Because the fleece is so fine, I find it can be hard to get a consistent spin, if that's not a concern, then this is beginner friendly.
To wash a raw fleece with large amounts of grease I use Unicorn Power Scour per directions on the bottle, except with water that is 130F. I do 3, 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!
