We had our sheep shorn last Sunday, 27th October! Praise God for the break in the weather! We had a couple of very light showers on Saturday when we were getting the sheep in the shearing shed but Sunday was dry all day!
I'm about to go and sort out the oddments (all the categories of wool that are not suitable for hand-spinning) to be taken to the wool-store in Geelong. When that is done I'll start weighing and classing each fleece. I'll post a list as soon as I get it written up!

Shearing happening soon plus new tops!

We have the shearer coming on 27th October, a bit later than I would have preferred but we have to take the date we're given!! Please pray for fine weather that week so shearing is not delayed! If all goes well I should be able to post a list of fleeces in early November! Spinners, stay tuned!!

Also, I've just had some optim top combed with alpaca - two shades, rose grey and fawn. I haven't picked it up from Cashmere Connections yet but I've been told it's really lovely! Can't weait to see and feel it!
