Today mother nature cooperated and gave us a fabulously warm and sunny shearing day. All together we sheared 7 of our 12 sheep and after skirting the fleeces we have a whopping 52 pounds! We will wait until it is just a bit warmer to shear the smaller Olde Babydoll Southdowns.
Here is a comparison of Mabel "before" & "after".
Now, after I pick out a few pounds for myself for spinning, I will take my fleeces to be processed in to wonderful Maine grown yarns!
