I brought home some BFL today to now I am studying sheep breeds. These are blue face Leicesters and the fibers are very long. For those of you who don't know, I grew up on a ranch in SE Colorado and I didn't spend allot of time in the sheep pens. I tended to love the horse and cattle operations--but now it is a different story. Do I ever want to own sheep and raise my own wool, NEVER. But I do love reading and learning about the different breeds of sheep and the fibers they provide me to spin. One thing I do know is I never want to stop learning and all of this is very much a challenge I am ready to accept. Off to spin some BFL--until next time.
Look how cute these little guys are and then they grown up into this!!
