Belvedere's 2010 Fleece- Covered Romney Wool


Belvedere, once again, produced a beautiful fleece! With its shades of silver and gray transitioning to heather, her wool is very pleasing to the eye. Despite being a mature ewe, she has maintained a nice crimp!

The outside tips of Belvedere's fleece are peachy-heather in color, adding to the overall warmth and attractiveness of the fleece.

Romney fleeces are noted for low lanolin content. Belvedere's lanolin level is considerably lower than typical Romney; this will translate into a higher yield of clean wool after washing.
