hmm... Le Tour de Fleece , come on, join in. You KNOW you WAANNA......

Ok I'm game. After all this seems like a much more civilized challenge than actually powering the "pedal" variety wheel for a month straight! Since I am in the throws of picking and washing fleece at the moment my goal will be to card (blending with mohair) and spin "Lolly's" fleece (in it's entirety). The end product - super soft sock yarn. Oh, who's Lolly? As seen above Lolly is a founding member of the London-Wul family flock. An adventurer, member of the homestead jet set, a marvel in mixed company, at ease with sheep and goats alike. Undeniably attractive, of prestigious Lincoln, Romney and Shetland heritage, she remains always a lady. Though now somewhat more grey than in this picture, she is aging gracefully.

......... let the games begin!
