Putting new goodies up on Etsy
I would like to introduce "Betty" a 9 month old Wenslydale ewe lamb to you all.
I was the proud gal who got to give her her first hair cut. It took awhile but I never wish to rush these little one's. I found if I go slow and give plenty of rest breaks we have a much better time and keep that baby fleece perfect. I find if I teach them that they will not be hurt during this process, next year it goes even quicker. I also give them a full body rub after the hair cut to show them how great it feels to have that wool off. Smiles from ear to ear is had by all.
Once I get the fiber back home I treat it with great care to bring out the best of each animal. I hope you like this colorway which I call "Nasturtium". I have placed this fleece in one ounce packets and have just placed all 7 ounces up on Etsy. The other half of her fleece already is spoken for so if you are the least bit interested in this wonderful fiber don't delay. Betty has a great future in the fiber arts world but she will only have this one baby fleece.
