Sunday Fun

Last week I got an email from Robina Koenig of Tumble Creek Farm up in the Pacific Northwest letting me know that her Fall shearing was done and she had some fleeces up for sale.  I had seen Robina's fiber at Black Sheep Gathering in June and asked to be on her email list.  I immediately opted for a small two-pound BFL lamb fleece.  It arrived yesterday so quickly.  Gorgeous little fleece, to say the least.

I kept looking at that fleece and knew there was no way I was going to be able to sleep unless I soaked a part of that fleece overnight, so that I could wash it today.  Here's the fleece drying out in the sun.  Very yummy.  Can't wait to spin it.

Getting a good, fresh, fleece is just a wonderful thing, isn't it! I love how that washed up. Yum.
