Sheep is Life

Here is how I spent four days last week celebrating sheep.  Dying, carding, spinning wool, felting slautering sheep, cooking mutton and fry bread.  Lots of material for yarns weather you spin a yarn or weave a yarn....write a yarn or tell a yarn....Churro wool..lovely natural colors.

Or hunt down the weeds and herbs and roots and leaves that give the yarn more's all about detail.

Time out for lunch

Pulling, carding, spinnng, felting- all a part of the story and getting the tension right.  Reworking it when you don't get it right.

The setting counts too.
