♬♪Baa baa rainbow sheep, have you any wool?
Yes Fen, yes Fen, two bags full.
One for your FarmWife to knit ear nets for you,
One for the fillies to play with after school,
Baa baa rainbow sheep, thank you for the wool!
It's wonderfully fuzzy, splendiferous and cool! ♪♫
This fleece was a gift from the ewes at Wind River Woolen in Wyoming. I saw pictures of them wearing it, then pictures of them next to it, so I'm pretty convinced that they actually grew it themselves. A miraculous thing!
FarmWife is excited about processing the wool from start to finish, and has a friendly neighborhood mentor to help her with the tools and skills. The outcome may be a woolen ear net, if I'm lucky, or at least a needle felted donkey or two if FarmWife's spinning doesn't go as planned. Either way, there are warm, fuzzy adventures ahead!
