Walda’s Felted Fleece Rug

walda rug

So above is a rug made from the fleece off of our Shetland ewe Walda and backed with felted wool from our Shetland sheep Jet and Diddley.  Here are photos of the felted back.

Walda has a huge fleece that is somewhat coarse on her butt. But it is certainly a dramatic rug. She is messy so there are some hay bits in it particularly near the neck.

Here are close ups of her neck and butt.

It is for sale for $100.  Let me know if you are interested at donnawh@earthlink.net

Green 2 ply fingering brown CVM yarn

We have yarn for sale at Schoonover Farm!   Our sheep have been well taken care of by us to ensure healthy and clean fleeces. They were carefully sheared, and their fleeces dried. I then skirted the fleeces and selected the best ones to include in this yarn. The fleeces were then sent to Stonehedge Fiber Mill and were processed and spun into 2 ply sport yarn. The resulting yarn is soft but durable and would be well suited for knitting.
