Enter, sweet Julie. Jules and I hooked up on Ravelry. I found out she had a stash of Jacob fleeces she had scored from a breeder, and had been using in her business, but now needed to get out of her garage. Julie is a budding shepherd (YAY! Another new shepherd-woman!!!) and hopes to be moving to farmland soon.
|Julie - sweet mom of two little boys, and nearly-a-shepherd, helps me cram 35 fleeces into the Olds.|
Fortunately, Jacob fleeces aren't really huge, and as well all know, wool squishes down nicely when you apply a little muscle. It looks a heck of a lot fluffier here than it did in the trunk and back seat of the car.
Not all of this wool is baby-butt soft, but some is.
And I believe all fiber has its purpose - even the scritchy stuff. We'll put it to good use, you can count on it.
Thanks again, Julie, for sharing your stash with us! And best wishes as you start your own shepherding journey! Mwuaaaa!
