I've posted here a bit about lamb, which I love. But as many know sheep have this annoying habit of growing wool. LOTS of it.
My wife did a great job setting us up an Etsy shop to sell said wool.

All natural colors as it grew in the sheep. No dies. Can't believe how beautiful it turned out.

Good way to get rid of it. My wife makes hot pads and pot holders out of 100 % wool...good for around campfires. So did you have someone spin it for you? I think that's the right term.

Yes, there is a mill about 3 hours north of us that specializes in this particular type of wool.
As a former spinner, and a knitter, that is nicely spun yarn, and the natural colors are hard to beat. I hope the Etsy shop does well.
Thanks! Yeah, we are really happy with it this year. It came out really great. The color of the lambs wool is unbeatable!
