What Is a Fleece Coat Labradoodle?
- A fleece coat Labradoodle is not a new breed or breed line but rather a reference to a particular Labradoodle coat type. Here, it might help to first explain that today’s Labradoodles can inherit a range of coat types that fall into three broad categories: wool, fleece and hair.
- The wool coat is a non-shedding single layer curly coat that resembles a purebred Poodle coat. The hair coat is a shedding single layer coat that is straight or wavy and most resembles the Labrador Retriever, Terrier or Spaniel parent coats.
- And the fleece coat, which we are discussing here, is a single layer largely non-shedding coat that typically ranges from wavy to loosely curly. This coat has a soft fleecy feel and is said to resemble the Turkish Angora goat’s prized wool coat. Labradoodles that grow up to inherit this coat type are called fleece coat Labradoodles.
