Fleece

Above all, this is a FLEECE INDUSTRY and we have to keep our eye on that end point at all times. Yes, the animals are engaging but they aren’t cuddly toys.

We submit our fleeces for judging by AAA-accredited judges for an objective assessment of how the breeding programme is progressing. We also participate in led shows, for ‘the whole package’ to be judged.

Further independent assessment is made by sending mid-side fleece samples of breeding stock to the Australian Wool Testing Authority (AWTA). Results are pleasing: weights are increasing and fineness is being held. First Fleeces are 18-20m and several of our older girls are holding finenessĀ  (9th fleece: 20m)
