    Imperfect BFL #4117

    $48.00 Add to cart

    Natural-colored BFL with 4″ staple length weighing in at a heavily-skirted 1.8 pounds. This fleece is tender, but the low vegetable matter content makes this an ideal candidate for adding texture and curls in a felting project, as the tenderness will not be apparent if the fleece is not processed.

    Imperfect Border Leicester #22289

    $68.00 Add to cart

    A white 4.5″ Border Leicester that is tender throughout most of the fleece. There is little to no VM in this one. Sold as a whole fleece at 3.0 pounds.

    Imperfect CVM #418152

    $68.00 Add to cart

    A dark gray and charcoal CVM with a very soft hand that is unfortunately tender throughout. This fleece is destined to make yarn with lots of texture or to be used in a felting project. Sold as a whole 2.2 pound fleece.

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect CVM #418186

    $55.00 Add to cart

    A 3.5 to 4″ long CVM with gorgeous variegated colors that is unfortunately tender. Sold as a whole 2.7 pound fleece.

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect CVM x Rambouillet #42075

    $52.00 Add to cart

    Medium to light gray CVM x Rambouillet crossbreed fleece with 3″ locks. This fleece is tender in many spots and will cause neps and noils when carding. For spinning, this fleece will give you texture for a tweed preparation, but will need to be blended with another fiber to create a yarn with integrity. For felting, this would make a nice textured base if carded woolen. This is being sold as a 1.6 pound (24 ounce) fleece.

    Imperfect Gulf Coast Native #421004

    $84.00 Add to cart

    A Gulf Coast Native fleece from the same flock that we sourced the fiber for our 2021 4th Quarter SE2SE club installment. This fleece, however, has both a little more vegetable matter than the fiber we used in the club, as well as a break right in the middle of the lock. At just 3.5 inches in length, that leaves less than 2″ in both of the broken halves; this fleece is most likely suited best for felting due to the short length of the resulting fibers. Sold as a whole 3.75 pound fleece.

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect Huacaya Alpaca #A42252

    $85.00 Add to cart

    A silky soft Huacaya Alpaca with a 4″ staple length. This fleece does have some dander which will require a little bit of extra processing and therefore puts it in our Imperfect category. Sold as a whole 3.5 pound fleece.

  • GCF Imperfect

    Imperfect Jacob #422353

    $99.00 Add to cart

    A relatively coarse Jacob fleece that is tender throughout. Gorgeous lilac color resutling in shades of white, black, brown, and gray. Three inch staple length. Sold as a whole fleece weighing 2.4 pounds

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect Jacob #423101

    $50.00 Add to cart

    A white and dark gray Jacob fleece with 3″ locks and a medium hand. We found a few tender spots in this fleece and decided to relegate the whole thing to our Imperfect category, though much of it is likely sound. Sold as a whole fleece weighing 1.5 pounds.

  • GCF Imperfect

    Imperfect Jacob #423130

    $52.00 Read more

    A small Jacob fleece with a soft hand. The locks measure 2.5 to 3 inches in length; color is about half white and half black. There is quite a bit of vegetable matter in this fleece, which is why it landed in our Imperfect category. There’s good fiber here; it will take some elbow grease to get the VM out. Sold as a whole fleece weighing 0.9 pounds or about 14 ounces.

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect Lincoln #422068

    $36.00 Add to cart

    A white Lincoln with locks measuring 7″ and longer. This fleece unfortunately has some vegetable matter, and the locks feel a bit crispy in some parts. There’s good fleece here, you just have to work for it. Sold in increments of one pound.

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect Lincoln #422238

    $120.00 Add to cart

    Here is a variegated Lincoln fleece, light gray to silver with locks from one and a half to about three inches in length, and lots of luster. Its atypically short and various length is what puts it in our Imperfect category. While this fleece could be spun, we would not recommend it for a beginner. It is an ideal fleece for a felter. Sold as a whole fleece weighing 3.7 pounds.

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect Merino Crossbreed #419112

    $105.00 Add to cart

    A 3.75″ long Merino crossbreed with short, tight crimp and incredibly soft hand. Deep black in color with some brown on the tips, we fell in love with this fleece without checking for soundness. Unfortunately, much of the fleece is tender which pushed it into our Imperfect collection. Sold as a complete 3 pound, 10 ounce fleece, this would be a great fleece for a felter or for a spinner looking to make fine wool nepps in an art batt as the tenderness of the fiber will cause it to tear while processing.

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect Montadale #42374

    $75.00 Add to cart

    A creamy white Montadale with a fairly soft hand and 5″ locks. This fleece has more vegetable matter than we allow in Good Clean Fiber, which is why it ended up in our Imperfect category. Otherwise, this is nice fleece – a true diamond in the rough. Sold as a whole 1.6 pound fleece.

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect Romney x Jacob #42065

    $55.00 Add to cart

    Romney and Jacob crossbreed exhibiting a wide range of colors from gray to brown. Staple length varies from three to four inches. The fleece is tender in many spots, which makes it one of our Imperfect fleece. Sold as a whole 2.6 pound fleece.

  • Fleece for Sale

    Imperfect Wensleydale #42320

    $95.00 Add to cart

    A Wensleydale lamb that has broken tips and is tender in spots. A deliciously soft hand with 5″ long locks, but may be better off in a felt project than for spinning. Sold as a whole 2.2 pound fleece.
