|Liam's wool...first fleece|
I took this picture in the fall. We keep the flock up closer to the barn lot during the winter. That makes it easier for the dogs to do their job of guarding the flock. Coyotes come closer during the winter months when their food supply gets slim. We have seen a few coyotes cross our pastures in the last few weeks. Also see their tracks in the snow.
|I dyed a BFL fleece and have been running it through the drum cardeer. Notice the glimmer of the wool. This wool will be spun for weaving a scarf to wear with my black dress coat. Working with the fleeces also helps us develop our breeding program.|
|I love color...I think dyeing a rainbow of wool is the favorite part of working with wool fiber...what is your favorite task of wool preparation?|
