An average 7” staple from the beautiful little Opal, one of our Lincoln Longwool ewes. Excellent to spin with! A very nice wide crimp. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of her in fleece!

From the Lincoln breed standard, the wool is

Distinctive, lightly yoked, uniform in wave or curl with loft, luster and density. Emphasis should be placed on uniformity.

Strong, well-defined, braid-type crimp with braid no finer than low quarter (46s).

Fast growing and heavy yielding by weight.

The white Lincoln should be free of colored wool. A small black spot on lower leg is not a disqualification. More or larger black spots are objectionable.

The colored Lincoln fleece is acceptable in any single color or variation of natural colors.

Available by the pound, raw. There may be small amounts of vegetable matter in the fleece but it has been well skirted and will clean up well when washed and carded.
