Here it is, the Wedding Shawl made from Zelda’s wool. Lynne from White Birch Fiber Studio bought Zelda’s roving. I could say she spun it into wool and knit it into a shawl, but it’s much more complicated than that. She soaks the wool in vinegar and makes it into a cake then give’s it a bath and wraps it in a towel. I know it sounds unusual and I may have gotten some of the details wrong, but you can read about it and see and hear the whole process from shearing to shawl here on Lynne’s website White Birch Fiber Studio. (There’s even one of Jon’s videos of Zelda begin sheared).
Lynne is selling the Wedding Shawl for $75 so if you’re interested in to or want to see more of Lynne’s work for sale click here.
Zelda and the other sheep are once again ready to be sheared. Lynne’s Wedding Shawl is the perfect way to end the story of Zelda’s first shearing on Bedlam Farm.
