Found: 1 dorset ewe lamb fleece

Picked up a garbage bag full of fleece today from a man named Bert who sells lamb meat at the local farmer's market here in town. I called him this morning, and told him what I was looking for. He told me he had just the thing, it's not quite a full fleece, but there's about 6 lbs of wool, and it's got an average staple length of about 3-4 inches, which I'm told is just about perfect for a new spinner.
I've started washing it, but I'll have to share pictures and instructions later, I'm off to work for the afternoon.
