Skirting table in the barn
The sheep were sheared on 3/9/23. The fleeces have been washed, and are posted on Etsy. The price is $25 per 8 ounce package.
The fleece is washed to preserve the curls. Some of the fleece has shipped to France and Australia, and all over the US.
Pickup at the farm is preferred, as the price to mail it is about the same as the cost of the fleece.
I have a few smaller batches of beautiful curly, crimpy fleece. It was the curly heart of a fleece. It is very white, respectably clean, and soft. It is excellent for crafts, doll making and felting.
I attend a weekly spinning group at Sheepscot General Store every Tuesday morning. The girls have mentored me to get my spinning skills started, and they have adjusted my spinning wheel tension, length of attached pedal, and they offer encouragement. I enjoy working with and washing the fleece, and this attempt to learn to spin has opened up new friends and skills.
