~ My Sheep are Naked ~

Monday night we had the sheep sheared. We only have 10 sheep so it didn't take too long.

 Naked sheep! 
 Clouds of fluffy white.

Twelve feet of Icelandic fleece to skirt, wash, and send out for spinning. If you are local and would like to purchase a raw fleece let me know.

  1. The sheep always look so funny after they have been shorn.
    Lovely fleeces :)

  2. Thank you ! They just look so tiny. Icelandics are not that big to begin with and several of my sheep have incredible fleece weights. I was much relieved when they all looked good body condition wise. Sometimes you just never know what's under all that wool (even though they have free access to good grass hay all winter long).
