Chloe, one of our natural colored yearling ewes went to the New Hampshire Sheep Festival this weekend. Actually, Chloe stayed home and sent her fleece to the festival and entered it into the fleece contest. This is the first time we have ever entered a fleece into a contest. Chloe’s fleece was just gorgeous after shearing with nice even crimp and so much luster. I felt surely it would be a prize winning fleece. The judges must have agreed; Chloe’s fleece won a second place ribbon out of many other Romney fleeces entered!! We are all so excited! Chloe’s fleece will be hand spun and some lucky person will buy the yarn and have this award winning fleece wrapped around them in a knitted item!

    Congratulations to Chloe and all of you! You must be very proud to have a prize winning fleece. Sorry I didn’t make it the the festival. Maybe next year.

    Probably the wrong place to post, but I just received my Cormo-Romney-Mohair CSA share and I am thrilled beyond belief. There were extra goodies in the box too, which made it even nicer. Many thanks for making this such a wonderful experience for me. When I get the wool dyed…….and I don’t know when that will be, I’ll send along a photo.
