Casper is my FRIENDLY old gent who never gives me a moment of worry. He came to us 12 years ago and from what we can figure he was already 4 years old when we adopted him. He was slated for slaughter before I found him - who could kill such a gent? Sixteen years old is Fantastic for this gentle guy - his lock stucture is not that great but his sheen and soft handle is what I love. When I add his fiber to llama or wool- the halo effect is unbeliveable - takes dye like none other and produces tons each year. His quite manner sometimes can give you a fright - he is like a ghost when he moves around but his kind heart makes up for any scare. With each passing year he gets a little bit slower but don't we all - his kind heart never changes and for that I am truely blessed.
