We are so so so lucky to be in such a great 4-H group. This was the highlight of the week. Brings me back to my childhood days. I remember watching our own Suffolk sheep get sheared and then the bags of burlap wool piled up for the next steps. Anyway, my kids were glued to the shearing show. We were given the gift of wool thenafter. We'll be washing and carding it soon. And then who knows what? Something crafty, for sure. To think, the fiber festival and then 4-H sheep shearing in one week? Thankful for great experiences such as these.
I think a spinning wheel is next...and a few sheep of your own!ReplyDelete
