I picked up my wool today from Vermont Fiber Mill at Maple View Farm. It’s from last years Spring and Fall shearing, so I have a double batch. And last years wool tells the story of my sheep. Those who were born, those who are no longer with us. And how the fall wool was full of seeds and burdock. I spent hours skirting Ma, Deb and Liam’s wool. It was loaded with velcro-like seeds. Deb from the Mill said she got some other wool that also had lots of seeds in it. She thought maybe it was a good year for burdock. ( so if you get any of their wool or roving you may find a small piece of bedlam farm plant life in it, straight from the pasture)
I have the last of Ma’s wool and the one an only batch of Ted’s wool. If you don’t remember, Ted was the Ram we brought to the farm for lambing. He’s a white Cheviot and the father to our lambs. I didn’t get any yarn from the lambs, it wasn’t long enough, but I have roving from them. ( Roving is cleaned wool not yet spun into yarn. It’s used by hand spinners, rug hookers, and felters). Suzy’s wool is a different color from last year. It’s a soft gray and really beautiful I think. And it seems to me that Sock’s wool is richer, darker brown than usual. It’s our first batch of Kim’s wool. She’s a Karkal (often compared in looks to the puppet Lambchop) and her white wool has a buttery look. Different from the creamy color of Zelda and Ted’s.
