Sheep Shearing Early Friday Morning

 

That’s Pumpkin upfront then Socks, Issachar, Asher, Suzy, Kim, and Merricat. Constance is to the right and Liam is all the way behind Fate.  Lori and Robin and Biddy are grazing on the other side of the solar panels.

Ian, the shearer who is filling in for Liz is coming on Friday morning at 8:30 am to shear the sheep.  I was relieved when he got back to me so quickly and said he would be here so soon.

I’ve been looking at Merricat and Constance’s wool and I think it may be long enough to shear.  It won’t be a lot since they’re still small, but I’d love to have some white Romney wool to mix with Liam’s wool.  Then I could leave some white and dye some.  And Constances’ black wool will be lovely just as it is.

I’m going to use Kim’s wool to make dryer balls.  I still have time to figure it all out.  But it’s always fun to think about how I’ll use all the wool.

I’ll get this wool back as yarn and roving in the fall.   I already have a list of people who want dryer balls and yarn.
