I just read this lovely post on one of the blogs that I follow, and really wanted to share it with you.
Jenny Holden keep a small flock of beautiful Shetland sheep, which she raises for their fleeces. I have a real soft spot for Shetland sheep and their fleeces. This post is all about shearing her flock, which she does herself using old fashioned shears (not electric) its a very interesting read. The following link will take you there..
I recon those fleeces would be amazing to work with! My very first raw fleece was a Shetland (from Shetland, brought back by a friend) and was an absolute pleasure to clean, spin and felt with! I LOVE a nice Shetland fleece!
