Remember these two little one's, Black Faced Valais' they belong to my son in Scotland.
Well they've grown big enough to be sheared for the first time.
Just look at them now, big and strong.
I have a drop spindle and am going to get a couple of carders.
Then I will wash it and have a go at making myself some yarn.
Meanwhile two new big boys have arrived.
Pete hopes to breed these beautiful sheep next year.
I'll keep you updated.
They are adorable. How nice of your son to send you the wool! And doesn't he look like Tom!ReplyDelete
Lovely sheep, your son is doing a great job, and oh so lucky you to receive the fleece, let us know how you get on.ReplyDelete
My God they are so cute I love sheep. xReplyDelete
Has Pete got a ram or will he be performing that particular task himself? Wellies are advisable.ReplyDelete
It will be very satisfying to use wool from sheep that are known to you.
i did not stop smiling all the way through the post and still have a big grin on my face. they are beyond adorableReplyDelete
They look like cuddly toys!ReplyDelete
Awwwww... the "babies" have grown so fast!! I can't wait to see the wool you produce from their shearings, Briony. I'd love to know how to do that. I admire you!! ~Andrea xoxoxoReplyDelete
The sheep are so adorable! They really do not even look real, they look like stuffed animals. Wow, you can spin wool!! I am so impressed. You will have to be posting us photos of the entire process.ReplyDelete
Please do keep us updated. Those sheep are so-oo cute.ReplyDelete
That's a lot of wool. It will be interesting to see what you do with it.ReplyDelete
They are like fairy tsle sheep with their wool on. I hope the fleece makes nice knitting wool - good luck with the spinning and we can't wait to see and read your thoughts on the process.ReplyDelete

I did not think those beautiful and strange sheep were real! I thought you were showing off some stuffed animals you had - WOW - incredible what God has wrought with those sheep! Amazing and so incredible looking!ReplyDelete
Those sheep are so flipping cute. I tried my hand at spinning and dyeing sheep fleece and it was great fun. I may have to dig out my kit and have another go.ReplyDelete
