We had the sheep shorn over the weekend at the Open House. I wasn’t there to see it. I was in my gallery selling art with Kim’s help.
But Deb has become a pro at bagging the wool as it comes off each each sheep and marking the bags with their names. I haven’t even had a chance to look at the wool yet, but Deb said the lambs gave two bags full each.
Soon I’ll skirt the wool then bring it to the Vermont Fiber Mill where they’ll make it into yarn. Once I get it back from them, I’ll sell it on my blog.
When the sheep are first shorn they don’t recognize each other. It takes about a day of them sniffing and baaing to get to know each other again.
I’m sure they’re enjoying being naked as the weather gets hotter.
