Hi everyone,
The new season's fleeces have been classed,weighed and photographed and are available for sale!
Unfortunately, seeing as it's only two days till Christmas, I don't have time at present to post the pics and details here but I will do so as soon as I can!
In the meantime if you'd like me to email you a price list, just email me at shiloh40@bigpond.com

A Merry Woolly Christmas and a Happy, Fleece-filled New Year to all!

At last our sheep have been shorn! I'm now working on classing, weighing and photographing all the fleeces and I'll post pics and info here as soon as I can! There are only 23 Bond fleeces this year so it's first in first served!
I have also been given five white fine Merino fleeces, which are good quality and have good staple lengths. The only fault is that they have not come from coated sheep and they contain quite a lot of vegetable matter (VM). If anyone is interested in beautiful soft fine Merino fleece and doesn't mind picking out the VM contamination, let me know!
Stay tuned....

At last we have our new shearing plant installed and the shearer is booked for next Saturday 11th December, all being well! This is two months later than our preferred shearing month of October but the delay was due to circumstances beyond our control and hopefully next year we'll be back on track!
Keep watching this space for details of the fresh fleeces which I'll post as soon as I have classed and weighed the them!
