Our shearing day was moved up to Saturday, March 14th. We began at 9:30 in the morning and finished up about 2:30 in the afternoon shearing a total of 61 head. Of which only 44 were mine. We included a few friends and neighbors sheep to take advantage of our expert shearers skills.
Soooo...I have many quality, gorgeous fleeces to choose from if you are looking for a spinning fleece. I will be taking at least 10 raw fleeces to the Great Lakes Fiber Show, May 23rd & 24th and by then I will have washed fleeces that I will give to some Fiber Mills to process into roving and batts. If you want a raw fleece contact me soon before I start washing them.
These guys are available as flock sires.
These 4 rams above are all out of Sire: ShelteringPines Grand Luxe S34244. Each ram is from a different ewe so their genetics are not related on the Dam's side.
This past fall I put sheep coats on many of the ewes and am so happy with the cleanliness of their fleeces.
Many of the fleeces will be available, contact me via email if you are interested.
I will try posting some pics. of the fleeces when I can as we have also began lambing.
