With all this wet and windy and cold weather we have been spending a lot of time inside. Joel has been spinning up our fleeces so I can start weaving wool rugs. He spins the wool straight from the fleece
into skeins and then I wash the skeins. We have a nice lot of really dark fleeces this year. A couple of our sheep have stayed dark after the lamb fleece was sheared. This isn't common as most dark lambs are grey after they first shearing.

  1. It will be lovely to see the process right from the beginning Margaret. I love those two lambs on your header. We have some black Wensleydale sheep just down the lane from us.
