Josie sent me this picture of the mittens she made using Rosemary’s wool and some alpaca yarn. “They’re so soft and warm,” she wrote me, “…she will live on keeping us warm along with all of the lovely sheep that have lived on Bedlam Farm.”
It’s always so satisfying to see what the yarn from my sheep become. It’s a beautiful natural cycle between all of us and the sheep. I don’t knit or crochet, but knowing that the sheep’s wool brings people joy by being able to create with it, then wear what they make, is just how it should be.
It’s a far-reaching collaboration that benefits all of us who are a part of it.
