I am trying to organize my fiber studio and reminded my self of three fleeces I kept for myself at shearing and now need to figure out what I am going to do with them. There is Jethro's fleece. He's our California Red wether. I have always sold his fleece so decided to keep it and play with it myself. Here's a photo of a lock.
There's Mutiny's fleece- she's our brown variegated CVM ewe with a really fine crimpy and large fleece. I have always sold her fleeces to so decided to keep it for myself this year. Here's her lock photo.
And there's Barney's lamb fleece- a primitive mioget very soft fleece. He'll never make another lamb fleece so decided to save it. Here's a lock photo.
Then there's all the wool I skirted off the fleeces this year. I need to go through it again and take out the felted and completely unusable wool and have the rest made into comforter batting.
So there's a lot of work to be done, on top of the usual animal chores. There are no lazy days of summer here!
