Gloria is a ewe with a range of Gray colors, Light to Dark Gray wool.  She has a little sun bleaching on the tips but this should disappear when you card it.  This is a very soft example of CVM.  Gloria's fleece is very short.  The best way to process this is to card it.
This is a Raw, un-washed fleece ready for you to scour.  I washed a sample in Unicorn Power Scour and the lanolin came out easily revealing the various shades of gray.   
Romeldale is a pleasure to spin.  You can also use this wool for wet felting, needle felting, and other arts and crafts.
CVM:  California Variegate Mutant is what Romeldales with colors other than white are called.  If the Romeldale is white it is called Romeldale. Both the CVM and the Romeldale are unique to the United States and are endangered.  This is considered a fine wool with an average of 21–25 microns.

***I photograph the fleece in bright sunshine to try to get the most accurate color replication.
