The 2012 wool harvest

Amazing!  With no lambs this year, the ewes put a lot of energy into growing wool.  Fleeces weigh 10, 12, 13 pounds after skirting.  We had several first fleeces from 2011 lambs, and Ringo the ram was shorn before he was returned to his breeder.  Even having sold several fleeces, we have enough wool to weave and knit for YEARS!
