This year I plan to send in some fleece samples for micron counts. I haven't collected samples from my sheep yet, but I did clip last rib samples from the new White Pine lambs the other day.
This is a photo of Arvada's fleece. Even though I'm not wild about micron testing, I do realize the importance of being able to speak "scientifically" about my fleeces. I'm sure I will learn a lot from the charts as they relate to each individual sheep. But I'm also pretty sure I will still like Arvada's fleece no matter what the micron results say. It's really nice fleece!
