I felt like I'd found it today. I finally tried to sort through and skirt the wool from my sheeps. It was such a beautiful day to be outside lazily picking hay out of wool.
This is Gabbie's brown and black fleece. Part of my homework for the master spinner's certificate is to spin fleece from each part of the sheep, so I tried to lay it all out in one piece.
I love her primitive sort of wool.
This is Georgie's grey "katmoget" fleece. It is stunning.
LOVE the tipped locks and they have a good crimp, too.
The dogs got into Greta's fleece while it was still in the barn (horrors). They rolled around in it and got hay all up in it. My friend Sue said I could bring it over and run it through her picker.
It's totally worth the effort, with its color (called "mioget") and its length!
Henry kept me company. He hopped and sniffed and chilled. Isn't he a handsome boy?
