We raise both Natural Colored Columbia’s and White fleece Columbia’s. Both types of fleece are for sale. This year (2018-2019) we have two charcoal colored fleeces, one silver grey, and two true black fleece for sale. The silver fleece belongs to our ram named Leroy. Leroy has had his fleece take first in its class at National Western Stock Show and third in the Grand Champion Drive in January of 2018. The charcoaled colored fleece belongs to our ewe 15-03, who had a fleece take first in its class at the Estes Wool Market show this pass show. This year we had 6 colored lambs which will make for 14 fleeces next shearing in 2019. If you would like to reserve a specific sheep’s fleece please email me at hamnerlivestock.com and in the subject title it fleece.

Leroy

Leroy has a 4 inch staple length. He is a Columbia cross with some Mereno. Leroy is old now and is a silver grey color. His fleece has been skirted and is clean. He has a mixture of 3 grey colors throughout his fleece with just a few strands of black fibers. I took several photos for you to get an idea of what his fleece looks like with a variety of greys. It has a light grey, medium grey, and dark grey. The first two photos show a true grey card for you to see what the grey compares to. 

$15 per pound. The clean fleece weighs 5 lbs.
$5 per pound for dirty wool mixed with second cuts.
