Have YOUR own fleece GRADED into various QUALITIES and supplied in marked, fabric bags.


Each fleece has 5 or more grades of fineness.

Sue has selected every fleece and graded it so you can be assured that its description is accurate.


Mixing poor quality fleece with high quality fleece will not improve the poor but will degrade the high.
