Bombarde Fleece

Blogger considered the image I wanted to upload toxic. Go figure. So I had to load this alternative picture instead.
This is Sheltering Pines Bombarde's fleece sampled today from the last rib. He is consistent front to back. Super soft as well. His staple is rather short. However, all the offspring he's ever thrown here have had longer staple.

That IS really lovely!

A lot of my sheep also have a real short staple like that. Although I wouldn't want a whole flock of sheep with 2" staples, they can bring overly long fleece into a nice hand spinning range, and soften them up nicely.
