|Fritillary does not want to pose for a picture|
This evening I'm listing Fritillary's (those of you who follow the etsy store know the story of her first shearing yarn) This will be her second shearing. The first netted six skeins of super soft single ply, that I then plied with dyed wool into a super nice yarn.
I expect her to shear 2-3 pounds of nice kid mohair curls with a 3-4 inch staple. No promises, just educated guessing. She has not been wearing a coat (you try to keep a coat on a fat little butterfly goat!)
|Fritillary's fleece, still attached|
|Thyme, with her daughter Nessie behind her.|
Nessie's baby fleece looks locky and will probably weigh in at less than 2 pounds when skirted.
Her fleece will be $12/lb.
|Chalcedony, our one icelandic ewe|
She tends to put on way too much weight and the heat is hard on her.
She will likely shear 6 lbs and I will split this fleece into one pound lots if requested. The under coat is downy and felts easily. The long outer locks are beautiful, but not soft.
Her well skirted fleece is $14/lb
