PM Ranch 2020 Shearing
We hope that this fiber will be turned into garments before the end of 2020!
Below is a fleece sample from one of the 2019 early-born lambs (20 February 2019) retained as flock replacement females. The wool is longer than most others because it is older (about 12.5 months old on 8 March 2020, when the sample was taken (8 March 2020) than lambs born in April/May which will only have 10-11 months of wool growth. Also, the early lambs were fed/managed differently because lambs there is no pasture for lambs born “out of season”. In addition, they were also “exhibition sheep” and were fed more, resulting in more wool growth.
