The other day in the shed…

Summertime and our 5 sheep needed a haircut. Susi is the boss of  a group of 5 sheep and a very gorgeous Gotland mix.
Said, done.

This is the very nice fleece of Susi:

After washing and carding, this is the result. The wool is coarser than merino wool but it works really well for sculptural felt.
