Rooing & Shearing

This is Lialac after I've worked on her:)  Seventeen of my shetlands starting going 'through the rise'  in December.  I've started (my first chance) to roo the fleece from some of them.  Lialac's fleece actually came off pretty easy and what wasn't ready to come off didn't, her rump.
We will be shearing this Saturday and I have some great friends coming to help, as most of you know....shearing is an Event!
Can't wait to get ahold of all those fleeces, making room right now in my studio (garage) for their storage.
...I have plans to have some socks made this year, pretty excited about that, although they are pricey, I'm sure they will be great.
