    Great pictures, looks like a lot of hard work. I will be interested to see how you process the wool at home.

      Thanks Chai Chai! It was a lot of hard work. We went out to dinner because neither of us wanted to cook. I have processed one sheep fleece and all the cashmere I have with the electric carder in roving. I have 6 fleeces washed and ready to go. The new fleeces need to dry before I can skirt them and get them ready.

    Wow, that’s impressive – great pictures! After Eifion left yesterday I wished I’d remembered to take a picture or two, but honestly, he’s so darn fast there wasn’t much time to do much of anything beyond the necessities.

    I’m glad that chore is done for you. We can’t have our sheep done till late April most likely, because of the road. I always dread shearing day. I get nervous the sheep will get nicked, although it doesn’t happen very often.

      Thanks Jackie! Some of the sheep were nicked but nothing bad. I know they are terrified by the whole process but at least it is over quick and they are back to their peaceful lives. And I have a lot of gorgeous wool. I hope your shearing day goes well.
