My sheep and wool loot. Not much to spin but it’s something. The brown is 8 ounces of Shetland wool to spin, hopefully to make my daughter a sweater. And fake cashmere because that sounds interesting. Try new stuff and all.

Today I went to a friend’s house to see her sheep get hair cuts. Look naked sheep! These are Border Leicester sheep, like from Babe. And all I could think the whole time was Bah Ram Ewe! This shearer is amazing, and fast! The fleece we washed was blindingly white and gorgeous soft. It looks like someone killed a polar bear with the fleece all spread out.
