Yearling Rambouillet Ram
FYI, there's a world wide increase in the price of wool, so we got almost twice as much for our wool in 2011 -vs- 2010. Example: Fine Staple was $2.20/lb - vs- $1.40/lb last summer. Not a fortune, but a better price for the fleeces that we won't use otherwise. Expect to see prices of wool yarns going up across the board out there, even at the (gasp) big box craft stores!
As I sort the fleeces, I can't help but pull out choice sections of Rambouillet fleeces that are going to the wool pool. ;) They get added to the future yarn stash.
