PM Ranch 2020 Shearing

 

WeatherWool Advisor Bob Padula was shearing in Mid-March 2020, and sent us some photos. Bob's daughters are wearing WeatherWool Anoraks and Neck Gaiters (THANK YOU LADIES!).

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. 

WeatherWool Advisor Bob Paula of PM Ranch took this sample from an early-born lamb's first-year shearing
