or is it fleeces...hmmm anyhow! I'm sure this will be a small series of posts on how I'm doing with this...yeah...this huge box of wool that arrived at my house Monday.
You see, a Dr. I taught to knit now lives on a farm, she sent me 2 out of the 3 fleeces she had.
The ram is a Southdown "Babydoll" and his name is Papa Fuzzbutton!
Here's a close up of some of his locks. Here is...
Fiona, she's a 1/2 Suffolk, 1/2 Babydoll (white fleece-- very soft).
and some of her locks! I separated them and now they are awaiting a bath & some picking (0r whatever you call it)
What the heck did I get myself into huh?? I'm only cleaning them, then sending them off for processing...should prove to be interesting.. stay tuned ;)
