Wool from Phoenix Farm is hand sheared every Spring from holistic pasture-raised animals -- it is 100% natural! We raise our sheep without the use of hormones or unnecessary antibiotics and they graze on lush grass grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizer.
This listing is for a 4-ounce braid of a beautiful Jacob roving from our handsome ram, C-Lo (in the last photo). It is a beautiful, rich black and white with a long staple length, excellent crimp, softness, and strength. This wool is a beautiful marbled color that will spin up to a gorgeous natural tweed. C-Lo's fleece has a long staple and is very fine, strong, soft, and lustrous.
This roving has been washed with an all natural plant-based soap, picked through by hand to try to remove foreign matter and debris picked up in the field, and processed to a lovely roving. It is stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment. It is ready for you to spin or felt! It would also make a lovely photo prop for infant photography!
Please note that this roving may have small bits of vegetative matter in it that is easily picked out during spinning. I skirt all my fleeces very heavily and hand-pick out any foreign material, but because our processing methods are chemical- and bleach-free (in order to protect delicate fiber), some small bits may be left behind that other chemical-heavy processes would obliterate.
Here at The Phoenix, we raise happy, healthy animals in a way that Mother Nature would approve! We offer seasonal products grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, steroids, hormones, or unnecessary antibiotics. We come as close to nature as human intervention will allow.
Everything at Phoenix Farm is raised using organic and holistic principles as we strive to be ecologically responsible. All animal fiber is harvested humanely with no harm or injury to the animals. Fiber is washed with plant-based soaps and dyed with chemical free food-grade dyes. When you buy fiber from Phoenix Farm Fiber, you can be confident that you are getting the most natural fibers without sacrificing quality.
