How much does one fleece weigh?

Hi Ladka,
These are very small fleeces. All of these sheep measure between 38 to 41 cm (15 to 16 inches) at the shoulders at 1 year old. The fleeces average around 650 grams (sometimes a bit more) skirted. Once the raw wool is washed I feel very happy if I have 450 (1 pound) of wool.

Thank you for visiting the Spinning Shepherd!
