If you want to either use your wool for hand spinning or market it to others for that purpose, you should make sure your shearer understands your goals.
Some shearers are all about speed, and just getting the wool off. You want someone who is going to preserve the quality of the wool while it’s being removed. This means: minimal second cuts, keeping the fleece in one piece (if it may be judged).
