Raw Fleece to Finished Yarn Sample: “Freesia” Shetland lamb fleece from Ballyhoo Farms

Sample of “Freesia” Shetland ram lamb raw fleece from Ballyhoo Farms (Kentucky) yielded 114 yards of 2-ply sport weight (40g). Fiber was scoured with Unicorn Power Scour and hand carded before being spun semi-worsted. I believe this was a 2021 fleece, so the tips were a bit fragile from temperature changes with the lanolin–and I bought it discounted as a result. I have 2 pounds total of this fleece.
