Baaaaaaaaa!

Merino

My fleeces came from Treenway today! They are sheepy in a good way & hardly dirty.
Behold their fuzzy majesty:


Merino












Polwarth











Gotland - no drooling ,it felts verrry easily!












Lookie what's coming my way:

A Hatchtown Kaari!!!!!
Black walnut/Cherry .95 oz

I've wanted one of these forever. Well since I spun on Carla's.
It was the first spindle I spun on that didn't feel like it was all going to come flying apart (the spinning not the spindle).
So, thanks Jim & gee, thanks Carla - extra special enabler.

(drool, drool...)

Jim & Pam at Hatchtown are superfantabulous, and their dog has a higher IQ than many adults I know...wait til you see my photos of their farm in Spin To Knit! Also, Pam's Coopworth fleeces are a DREAM to spin!

Drool? I guess this brands me as a non-spinner (so far): i thought you had posted buckets of fish or worms or something.

Later, I'm sure I'll want to drool.

Question: I have a fleece of my own on it's way [thanks to this post!] and I am wondering if you think I will have to wash the fleece before carding/flicking/combing?
