What I am working on

Today I am washing Isobel's fleece - she is a moorit, and this is her lamb fleece.  BTW, the 2016 lamb naming theme was Downton Abbey characters.

Beautiful Richness

Pretty crimp

Very pretty! Are such light tips typical in your flock?

Hi Michelle - thanks for your nice comment. I am not sure if the light tips are typical. We do actually get a little sun up here in Western New York, I imagine that is the reason for the bleached tips. I don't mind them though, makes for very pretty highlights among the moorit when its spun up. Most of the tips come off as I flick card all my wool by hand - Jen
