Available Merino Fleeces 2014

If you are interested in purchasing a fleece, please contact me for payment and shipping arrangements. You can reach me through the contact form on the “Who’s Flying?” page of this blog, at melo.lopes@sapo.pt or through The Flying Fleece’s facebook page. Some of the fleeces are on sale on Etsy and you can access the listings by clicking on the images. Feel free to send me a message with questions or concerns=)

 

All fleeces are

– soft, standard breed staple length of 6-8 cm aprox.
– lightly skirted: most of the short and very dirty bits were taken away
– washed by hand with care in a running creek and dried under the sun
– natural white/cream colour
– still contains some lanolin and vegetable matter (Portuguese sheep are seldom coated) It will fall out as you work the fleece
– unpicked: there are short nepps and cuts here and there. They are easily removable by hand.
– from a traditional small farm in Coimbra, Portugal
