2017 FLEECES


Before purchasing a fleece, please read the following:

*Fleeces are priced and sold as whole fleeces.  A very few might be sold cheaper and "as is" because of a disclosed defect.  All AS IS fleeces are non-refundable.  

 

*Our sheep are not coated!  We live in Arkansas, with temperatures reaching over 100 degrees for many days each summer.  Our sheep are pastured in clean pastures, however, they always manage to find stuff to "decorate" their wool with!


*The fleeces have been lightly skirted.  We remove the worst of the poo and sweat tags, and belly and leg wool.  This means there will most likely be dirty portions, especially around the edges of the fleece.  I cannot see throwing away beautiful fleece just because it needs a good washing.


*Scurf.  Please realize that scurf and dandruff are totally different things.  While dandruff is visible in a dirty fleece, scurf generally does not show itself until after a fleece is washed.  If a fleece has dandruff, it will be noted and priced accordingly, and can be flicked or combed out.  If you wash your fleece and scurf appears, please contact me.


*I have checked all of the fleeces for soundness.  If there is a problem, yet I still decided to list that fleece for sale, the problem will be clearly stated and the price adjusted accordingly.  However, there are some flaws that either get missed (I check each fleece in 4 areas, not every lock!) or that do not present themselves until the wool is washed.  If you discover a legitimate defect in a significant portion of the fleece, please contact me at lorisarahbrown@gmail.com and I will discuss how to make it right. 


 

Shipping and Billing

Fleeces are shipped via the USPS, generally using the least expensive method unless otherwise requested.  Every fleece will have $15.00 domestic shipping added to the total price of the fleece. You will be billed for this amount per fleece, BUT PLEASE NOTE: any excess shipping charge will be refunded as soon as I mail your package, so you will really only be charged actual shipping.  (This has worked very well in years past and really simplified matters.)  I happily ship internationally, but postage will likely be more, and you will be responsible for any additional charges incurred by international shipping.

 

You will be sent a paypal invoice for your purchase which should be paid for within 24 hours, or the fleece will be relisted.  All fleeces are sold on a first come, first serve basis.
