When I bought 8 Tasmanian genetic Corriedales, my husband wasn’t sure about the decision. When I showed him the fleece and he watched me shearing them (and how quiet they were), he said, “Cross them with Teeswaters… they will be ‘Easydales!'” Well, thats exactly what happened. I crossed some of the Corriedales on my Teeswaters and “VIOLA,” Easydale fleece. Like the Corriedale, the crimp is bold and finer than a Teeswater. Not only that, the sheep are docile like the Corriedale… so what did the Teeswater donate to this crossing? The staple length is longer with more luster than a Corriedale and the sheep have spotted faces characteristic of the Teeswater. I can’t tell you how beautiful these fleeces are, they are simply lovely and incredibly soft. The fleece I have for sale now is a first shearing with varied staple. Some is on the shorter side and is suitable for carding, and others can be lock spun. The longest part appears to be about 5 inches stretched with most somewhere in the middle. That said, there is a lot that falls under the 4 inch mark. It is so heavily crimped that it really shortens the fiber)! Just know, you will love this fleece and I only have about 5 lbs total for sale. This will be it until I shear the next (and last) three in January. Please use the button below to purchase in lb increments. When the button is gone, so is the fleece!
