Washed Fleece Pricing: $1/ounce, $15/pound for full fleece.
$12/pound raw fleece is equivalent to $17/pound washed due to washing losses that average 30%.
Full fleece pricing is a 63% total savings per ounce (fiber + shipping) versus purchasing 1 oz. washed fiber.

It is very difficult to keep locks intact through the washing process particularly if the raw fleece contains any VM. My standard washing process includes prewashing to remove the dirt and some of the grease (lanolin in wool), followed by hand picking to remove most of the VM, followed by a final wash to remove all (or nearly all) of the remaining grease. Washing is done in a washing machine for soaking and spinning (ie- no agitation). This gives an extremely clean fleece that can be spun directly from the fleece. The less VM in the original fleece, the less damage there is to the lock structure. Most fleeces are not clean enough to produce clean intact locks. Only fleeces with low VM and good lock structure are hand washed to retain as much lock structure as possible. That’s why locks are so expensive and not always available.
