Fleece Peeks


Spud - I normally don't like sunbleached tips, but I think his are stunning.


Woolliam

The longwools (Woolliam, Keebler, B. Willard, Buddy, Rebecca Boone, Hershey) have nine months growth instead of six this year, so the staple length is really nice.  Long, but not too long and no one had a heatstroke last summer :-).


Murphy


Henri


Baby Belly - I still can't get over how clean the fleeces are this year.  Thanks, Kate!


Lila.  This is my sleeper favorite this year.  Lila just cruises along under the radar...


Buddy...the best curls...and the "best" lanolin producer ;-).  It really does wash out.  Just be prepared with super hot water!


Keebler - another grease ball, but we know how he cleans up :-).


Chocula on the left, Ford on the right.  Guess how much Chocula weighed!  Well, you'll never guess because the picture just doesn't really capture it.  13.5 pounds :-o.  Daniel weighed just over 13! That's a lotta sweaters!  I'd be willing to divide those two fleeces into two 6.5 pound fleeces...which is still a lotta sweaters :-D.


Liddy, working hard growing her first fleece :-).  Kate resting up for VM (vegetable matter/hay) patrol next winter :-D.

The forecast is looking a bit damp for this weekend...so just dress appropriately and come have some fun anyway :-D.

All so different! I like the first one, will it stay two-tone?

Those are some really pretty fleeces! The Cots have great luster. Cool how Spud faded from dark to gray during his first year. Seems like there ought to be a way to preserve the color change in the yarn - maybe comb the locks and spin them butt to tip and tip to butt..... dark, light, dark, light. Much work, but it would be neat! Good luck! Those will find new homes quickly.

Beautiful! And oh so clean! Especially liking Spud, Henri and Lila. But you couldn't go wrong with any of them. Best of luck at the show with the fleeces you are entering!!!
