What I've been up to this month...

Sorry for not posting much this month. Since shearing there has been so much to do. It has seemed overwhelming at times. I started out with sewing new coats for the sheep. I wanted to get them on right away. We took them off of the sheep about a month before shearing because they needed new ones. Well I never got out and measured for new ones, so they didn't get made or put back on. What a mess that made of their wool in the terms of vegetable matter. BIG LESSON LEARNED!!!! A stich in time saves nine. It has taken alot more work to clean the fleeces up. We have also been working on washing, picking, carding and have tried a little dying. Want to try out wet felting soon. Will post more pictures of the process in the next couple of days.
