Shearing day 2009: Bob Schroth of Strasburg, Colorado shears Arturus ...
The following table is a list of Bond, and Corriedale X Bond fleeces currently available.
The list is arranged with the lightest coloured fleeces at the top of the list, and the very darkest fleeces are at the bottom.
Please check back from time to time as more fleeces are skirted.
I will split the larger fleeces in half from front to back, meaning that you would get 1/2 the shoulder, back, and flank wool from that fleece.
Current Chart Updated March, 2014
The larger fleeces that are not split were show fleeces.
Things here, continue to be difficult. However, I am attempting to make fleeces from 2013 available at this point. I have not been able to resurrect past files of fleeces requests, from 2013, as we now have a new computer and the files were lost.
The best I can do at this point is post the fleeces and let you look and see if there's any that are of interest. This is not all by any means. I continue to skirt and post as often as I can.
Keith has taken retirement from his job of many years at the University of Colorado, This means, he no longer drives to town every day. So, fleece shipment can no longer be made the day after payment is received. Its likely that trips to town will be limited to twice per week, so, fleece shipments will be made then. I will still send an email upon shipping the box of fleece.
We anticipate shearing late this month, with lambing to follow in late April and May. This will be our first lambing in 3 years due to the drought and lack of hay for the flock. We hope for lamb fleeces the shearing of 2015 - that's looking far ahead!
Thank you all for your kind wishes and patience.
