First is Desert Peach Charlee, four year old, the ewe who has the Shirley Temple lamb. I hope her lamb has a fleece much like her dam. I love Charlee's fleece. She gives me close to three pounds, 2.6, of heavily skirted fleece every year. That is a dirt line in her fleece but no color. Great hand and blends wonderfully with silk for a smooth silky next to the skin yarn. With or with out the silk. Beautiful shine!
Desert Peach Hattie three year old ewe. She has pretty much the same type fleece as most my sheep but too short for what I want. Black Ag ewe very little black left in her fleece.
This is Wilson a yearling wether. Beautiful color and you can see next year his fleece will look much like the ewe's above. His fleece is very much a single type coat. I have about a pound of his usable fleece and spun up that piece of yarn. He's fiber makes a nice lofty yarn with candy strips from the layering of colors. This fiber is lower in the micron range of all the other fleeces so far.
Stonehaven Watson yearling ram with teeny bitsy crimp all the way up each lock. One pound of skirted fleece jet black and appears that it should spin up into a nice lofty yarn. Very soft too for a black fleece. Can't wait to work with it!
Desert Peach Tru, pending, two year old first time bred. On her body her fleece looks like a single/tippy type fleece. Great hand loads of usable fleece. (I need to get the weight). I also need to spin some to see what type of yarn I will get.
Desert Peach Stevie, yearly bred ewe. Awesome length but eeewww not very soft!! She is breed to Watson so hope her lambs do better in the fleece department. I will keep Stevie because I want that length of fiber on my sheep. Four to six inches.
Desert Peach Pepper, pending, two year old first time bred. Black Ag ewe with a moderate double coat type fleece. Very little color. I love the length, hand and she gave me 2.5 pounds of usable fleece.
