The fleece of the montadale is radiant white or natural hued black being the most popular with spinners. A minimum staple of 4 inches, it should be free of hair or kemp. Montadales have very little lanolin in the fleece which produces a higher harvest. Fleeces from ewes typically weight 8-12 pds. The micron count is between 25 to 32 making this a medium to coarse wool.
