Ebony and Ivory lusciousness....





Look what I am drying on the front lawn!

I was generously gifted these fleeces by a friend who's sheep were shorn the other day. It has been raining a bit here so the fleece is a bit damp and I have been waiting for a sunny afternoon to dry it out....



For anyone wondering my boys survived the Quad bike experience (just) and came home happy and bedraggled, a little rain wasn't going to stop them!

  1. I love seeing wet bedraggled kids...always looks like they're having a ball.

    The colours of that wool are gorgeous.

  2. Wow, so will you dye the wool as well or leave it the colour it is?

  3. ooh lucky you with some lovely fleeces! i remember touching mum's wool or going down to the shearing shed at my uncle's farm, loved the smell of the lanolin and the super soft hands it creates

  6. Yaye!
    What lovely old coats those sheep have donated!
    What breed of sheep is it bella? Do you know what approx. micron it is? Did the donors give you any info that would inform a retired woolclasser such as me?
    Would drying in the shade be better as in handwashing/drying recommendations for woollen garments?

  7. Happy (albeit wet ) looking boys you have there. How much valium are you taking everytime they get on the bike?

    How about a step by step series of what you do with that wool. I'd be really interested to see the process.

  10. The wool looks like work, darn it. I'd come help you, but it'd take me twenty hours to get there. Those boys - chuckle and shake my head. I'd sneak out there and steal parts off that devilishly scary machine in the middle of the night -
