So today I was able to find some time to skirt a few fleeces. Above is Daphnie’s Shetland fleece. Here are links to see photos of the underside of her fleece and her locks. Her fleece has a little VM and is less dense than in the past, but it is quite soft. It weighs 2# skirted.
Below is Miss Lizzie’s Shetland fleece. Hers also has a little VM but has a nice color, density and softness. Here are photos of the underside and her locks. After skirting her fleece weighed 1# 4 ounces.
Here is Monette’s Shetland fleece. She has a nice fleece with very little VM. It is not as dense as in the past and weighs 2# skirted. It is a nice fleece. Here’s photos of the underside and the locks.
Here is Dete’s Cotswold fleece. Her fleece is still moist so will continue to dry. It is quite dense and lustrous with very little VM. Here’s the under (cut) side and a lock. This fleece was heavily skirted and weighs 4# 4 ounces.
This is Wink’s Shetland fleece. She is sheared twice per year because of the length of her fleece. This fleece is quite small (as she is quite small) but it is very soft, long, and golden. Skirted it only weighs 8 ounces. It has very little VM. Here’s photos of the cut side and a lock.Here’s Hansel’s large Shetland fleece. Unfortunately he had started to roo before shearing and some of his fleece felted too. His fleece is gorgeous though, after skirting these parts out. It is soft with a lovely color and nice crimp. It has a small amount of VM and weighs 2# heavily skirted. Here’s links to the cut side and his locks.
