....since I was talking about fleeces and such, I wanted to share these pix I took over the weekend. These are two Shetland fleeces that I have since boxed up and will ship out to be processed. I am sending them to http://www.stonehedgefibermill.com/ whom I've been very pleased with in past fiber processing. I'm hoping these fleeces will turn out a nice dark oatmealy roving.
I had thought they were closer in color than they actually are. They are both musket lamb fleeces. The one on the right is from Drake's fleece from last year, which I saved hoping to combine it with another fleece this year. The one on the left is Luna's lamb fleece from this year. They are both very, very soft, and I hope that is retained during the processing.
Have a great weekend!
