Florida Cracker #217
$23.00 – $74.00
A 5″ long Florida Cracker with a medium hand. A white fleece with tan tips and some yolk stain (yellowing) in the middle of the lock. This fleece has a relatively low vegetable matter content compared to many other in the Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em program but does have some sand that will shake out in the processing.
Good Clean Fiber is fleece that has been skirted and scoured and is ready to be prepared for spinning or felting. Unless otherwise noted, it will be virtually free of vegetable matter and dirt, though please keep in mind that fleece are grown on animals that spend their time outdoors and in barns. Each fleece has been triple washed with Unicorn Power Scoured to remove lanolin and dirt and rinsed with Unicorn Fibre Rinse to give it that nice, soft feel. These scour and conditioning products have a light hint of lavender, which will tend to keep wool moths away from your fleece.
Good Clean Fiber is available for purchase from two ounces to whole fleece, and via three quarterly subscription clubs. We add new fleece to the Fleece for Sale page each month. New arrivals are available exclusively to club subscribers for one month.
Our Pure Subscription club delivers four ounces of purebred fleece each quarter and is ideal for the spinner looking to experience a variety of breeds. Our Bliss Subscription club delivers four ounces of fleece each quarter that has been chosen specifically for its hand-spinning qualities. Our Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em Subscription club delivers four ounces of fleece from a breed on the Livestock Conservancy’s Conservation Priority List, and each installment includes a passport sticker for the SE2SE program. Our Prime Subscription includes early access to new fleece, but no quarterly fleece delivery.
Since we often purchase an entire clip at one time, not all fleece measure up to our lofty standards for Good Clean Fiber. Imperfect Fleece have one or more minor maladies and their pricing reflects that.
