New Stage

What is my new stage in life?  Taking wool from my sheep and turning it into a product I can use in my craft making.

Here is a picture of the first sheep to be sherd this year.  She is the only dark sheep we have, the rest have white wool.

The first picture is of the wool after it was washed and dried.  I then brushed it which is the next photo.

My lovely teacher, Beth Jackson from Ontario, Canada.  She was here in Patagonia, Chile visiting her son`s family and was able to take some time to teach me to clean and drop spin my wool.

My first two skeins of wool.  Many more to come.  I still have to learn to dye the wool.
