We visited a local farm yesterday for their sheep shearing. It was so great–i’m glad we braved the weather! The sunshine made the cold bearable…
Anyway, here’s a picture or 2.
While we didn’t get any roving, we plan on stopping back by. I read that Dorset is a great wool for needle felting & they’ll shear the majority of them in a few weeks, so we’ll return. If you’re local & not visited Rising Meadow & Goat Lady Dairy make a plan for May 2nd! (after you visit us downtown for this).
& though I’m not much of a knitter, Drew & I are both set on the idea of getting freshly shorn wool then cleaning & carding it ourselves. How can one NOT want to do this, at least once?!
Here are some of Naomi’s Shots from the front row.
