Diane Falck on Harvesting Wool…

Another charming set of posts from The Spinning Shepherd, from whom we heard earlier in the month… Today, Diane gives us a glimpse of the Wool Harvest that ensures some happy spinning times ahead for this Spinning Shepherd!

May 31, 2012 – Almost finished !

Whew ! Shearing is almost finished.
It’s really a lot of work …

But what a lovely reward for the Spinning Shepherd !

August 26, 2012 – Sheep to Sweater Sunday n° 114 : ” A Perfect Present for the Spinning Shepherd ! ”

Nothing but a little bag …

… that holds a beautiful present !

Nicely rolled up …

… then unrolled …

… it’s a spinner’s dream !

A big “thank you” to Agnella des Lutins du Montana, a lovely little light brown Ouessant ewe, and to her shepherd, Dominique, for such a beautiful fleece that has made this Spinning Shepherd very happy.
