A recent holiday to Wales we stayed at Brecon close to the National Park. Sheep everywhere wandering around the roads feeding the lambs and holding up the traffic. I made several enquiries about buying a fleece and eventually I got directions form a lovely lady in a wood shop about an industrial estate that distributed the fleece throughout the UK, I wondered if they would sell one to a loan spinner
Here is my new mate who spent so much time finding different fleeces to compare and select the best for spinning
Here it is laid out on the lawn back home nicely skirted and quite clean full of lanolin
Check out the staple length and the beautiful crimp
He couldn’t tell me the breed of sheep except it is a cross, now I am starting to spin it it feels beautiful
Carded and ready to spin. Two of the beautiful Welsh sheep happy to be relived of their coats now Summer has finally arrived!
