yarn made by the flock

Well they made the fleeces, right? They ate grass and a little grain. They hung out in the barn. They did their part to add more carbon and nitrogen into the soil here at the farm. And once a year they are shorn, no it doesn’t hurt them. And then I take it to be cleaned, combed and spun into yarn.

Sometimes I leave them in their natural colors and sometimes I dye them up in luscious colors.
