Cormo fleece – bright white with a well defined crimp.

Each year thousands of people from the east coast and beyond flock to West Springfield Massachuesettes tp participate in The Eastern States Exposition commonly referred to as The Big “E”. This year the sheep flock at Buckwheat sent their shepherd northeast-ward to deliver some fleeces for the wool fleece competition at the show.
Now these boys are not the bragging kind – not at all. But…..well their fleeces did mighty well at the show and they deserve some kodos for the effort.
