A farm close by has been shearing there sheep this week, today was the lambs turn so we went along to observe the process and buy some wool from the fleece.
Terri showing her children how the sheep shearing is done.
Once the sheep are sheared and the shearer picks up the entire fleece and moves it to the sorting table.
The fleece is then tossed and sorted into different grades
With my spindle I did a quick spinning demo, the shearers were more interested than the children. It was nice to have them watch me.
