Intro first: This has been the way I sell my raw fleeces for years, and it has worked out fine.
This is the reason I do it this way...
I and the Border Collie, Dex are the only ones here on the farm working. My sister comes over and helps when I really need her, but she is NOT into raising sheep.
I shear the sheep on or around Feb 15th, as I need to get what is not sold to the processors the next day so I can have my goods back to me in April for Greencastle Fiber Event.
To get all of this work done I HAVE to sell the Prime a month in advance.
The typical shearing day goes like this:
8:00am Start shearing, bag and tag each fleece, (Sharon's Job)
Noon: Sharon and I skirt and package the order(s) for each fleece.
9:00 pm bag for processor
Next morning, mail packages to you the buyer
Next day: Drive to processor.
These Fleeces WILL NOT come off until Feb 15th 2012
1st monies to Paypal wins (firstname.lastname@example.org), along with shipping monies. Remember to add your REAL Name and your Avatar Name, your e-mail to your Paypal. My phone # is 269-330-9899. BUT, I will not reserve over phone. Shipping quotes at USPS.com, use Priority package. Not the Flat Rate, (too expensive). My Zip code is 49093
I will post sales as they come in, remember that does take time.
These fleeces are available for 25.00 per pound for the prime wool, that is the fleece that has been under the coat, and is free of vegetation.
Fleece can be sold by the pound, and if still available can be bought as a whole fleece. The adults will be about 5#s, - 4 #s.
1st monies gets your choice of fleece...Thank You.
