Our shearer Scott, who also has alpacas, just gave us a car full of fleeces!
There were so many stuffed in the back of the car that they were crowding the head space in the front seat. I’m excited, not only because this means we’ll have plenty of roving this year, but also because Scott has beautiful chocolate-y brown alpacas and fawns. We only have Tulip, so we definitely love getting more fawn.
We’ve already skirted 7 of the fleeces, and we’ll drop them off at the mill when we pick up our finished roving from our own animals. Eee! It’s going to be a good year.
