Whispering Pines Farm
Registered Shetland Sheep
Superior genetics and fine fleeces for the discriminating handspinner.
Raw fleeces for sale  Beautiful, fine shetland fleeces, wonderful crimp and handle.  In addition to fineness and crimp, we also breed for consistent quality from neck to britch - the photos and samples are an indication of the quality throughout the fleece, not just the neck wool.  All fleece photos and lock samples are taken from 5th rib, which is the standard location for micron testing and fiber evaluation.  Fleeces have been lightly skirted.

Our shearer is the top ranked shearer in the US, so the quality of the shorn fleece is excellent, there are minimal second cuts and fleeces are perfectly intact so you can tell which part of the sheep the fleece came from when you lay it out.

Note:  We do not jacket our fleeces so they do contain vm.  Please email me for the latest price list with photos, micron info and pricing.

In these listings I provide a photo of the ewe the fleece came from and the lock sample, locks were taken just before shearing in May 2013 and reflect 12 months growth.  if you need more photos, please email me and I would be happy to forward additional photos and information.
