Shearing Day!

Yahoo! Today was shearing day. I am so excited about this year’s fleeces. They are just gorgeous. The Lamb CSA yarn is going to be a lovely silvery gray with a nice luster and the softness that only comes from a lamb’s fleece. Tarragon, our Cormo ewe must have had a 12 pound fleece. It was so large we could hardly get it all into one bag. Her fleece is the main fleece in the mohair/Cormo/Romney blend yarn CSA. Ina and Bonnie will contribute their fleeces for this yarn as well. Then there is Belle’s fleece….a beautiful black Cormo fleece. I will probably hand spin her fleece. It was great to see our sheep shearer as well. I always enjoy talking with him as he works. He seemed impressed with our fleeces as well. David, our shearer, would really rather that we not take his picture but this year, he humored us by posing.
