Bellevue Park Fleece
Raw Fleece, superfine merino from Bellevue Park.
Breeding beautiful Saxon Merino sheep, a breed with over 300 years in history, Bellevue Park produces superfine and ultra fine fleece, with a micron of 16.8 and lower. Saxons are a robust sheep with a natural resistance to pests and diseases, and a high level of lanolin in the wool, which helps to repel dust and dirt. This means that the farm is able to produce more kilograms of better quality fleece per head of sheep, which reduces the number of stock per acre, and therefore the lasting impact on the land.
