We started one of our favorite rituals this morning, skirting the wool – cleaning it – in preparation for being converted into yarn and roving. That will take the knitting mill about six months. It was awfully windy this morning, there was some wind noise on the video, but it’s quite audible.
This is our first look at the newly-shorn Romney wool, the Gang Of Four. We had a rapt audience – Chloe, the dogs, the donkeys, the barn cats. Maria is excited about this wool, come and see. After the video, I have to roll up my sleeves and join in, we need to get it done before it gets cold, that is rough on the fingers.
Come and see.
