Ok, I may be a little biased – but Jacob fleeces are awesome 😉 I have been working on my Black Sheep Gathering Spinner’s Lead entry and I chose to work with Symphony’s fleece.
She has beautiful hues of dark brown and it is so soft!
I split the fleece into 3 different colors…
here are the carded batts.
After carding the fleece, I felted the different colors into pieces of fabric. The plan is to turn the fabric into a jacket! I’ll post more pictures and details, but I just had to show you all of the pretty colors in a jacob fleece!
I am constantly amazed at all the different colors in their fleeces — especially since they’re supposed to be “black and white.” There’s so many different shades… they’re neat sheep!
I cannot wait to see your progress and the end result! Symphony is a lovely Jacob ewe!
The flowers in your previous post are abundant around here too, but I don’t know what they are either! Gotta look them up!
I like your ducks. The only surviving ducks I have( from coyote massacre) are a runner female and a Call male, they have been mating ( that’s a sight! ) and have laid a huge clutch of eggs. I put 2 under a broody banty and am so curious as to what that combo might produce.
I enjoy the photos of your son with the baby animals…he is living a life so many children would benefit from, and you are all so blessed.
