Sheep shorn...




Rama-lama seemed SO big with all is wool on. Now he seems so small.  He is a Southdown/ Dorset cross. My plan is to wash his wool. I am growing dyeing herbs and flowers this year. I plan to dye the wool in different colors and make felt cloth with it. Then sew it into bags perhaps or needle felt some of it into a wall hanging.  

After we sheared the sheep hubby finished putting their first pasture fence in.   Frolic was the word of the day!

Whenever I see a freshly shorn sheep my first thought is always that they look like they need a sweater!
