"Yes sir, yes sir, 3 bags full"

Well, I have my work cut out for me.  I just made a purchase from Lael (of Maplewood North/Hearthside Fibers).  Three very nice bags of smooshy soft wool.  My house smells like a barn at the moment-it's not a smell I dislike at all.  The dark brown/black is from a Shetland named Brie.  I had gotten her fleece last year and loved it so much I reserved it for this year.  (I'm still not through all of last year's)  Then I got a nice white Shetland named Vanilla.  The third bag is a white Coopworth (no name).  All look very promising for making some wonderful yarns.  So let the washing begin!  (Shhh-don't tell my plumber)


  1. Geez, now I want a bag of wool. I still have to sort my Alpaca shearing. Yikes!

  2. Very Tempted to check here for local fleeces.. I have the urge to wash a nice fresh fleece.
