Fleeces For Waynesburg Sheep & Fiber Festival

WRF Rambouillet #329 - Crimpy Rambouillet Fleece
I'll be heading down to Waynesburg tomorrow to get the vendor booths measured & taped off for the festival on Saturday & Sunday.  Vendor set up is from 4 to 8 PM on Friday and 7 to 9:45 AM on Saturday.  It looks like the weather will cooperate with maybe a few showers Saturday afternoon. 
The ever popular WRF Ewe #329 sheared another great crimpy fleece this year & it will be for sale. 
She is out of our old Schafer ram from Colorado.
Another Rambouillet fleece below is coming to the festival from WRF Ewe #415.  She is a daughter of our performance tested New York ram.   We always like to bring several fleeces for the handspinners who come to the festival ..... some folks just like to process the fleece themselves all the way through spinning & dyeing the yarn, & knitting the garment!

Oh my! Look at the staple length on #329! Drool....

See you tomorrow, I'll be the one running to teach spindle spinning. I did that last year and forgot to grab my baggie of wool nepps from you--hold one for me this year?

Just got home about 40 minutes ago after locking up the buildings. I think you'll really enjoy yourself - some great regular vendors and more new vendors - YEA!
I was putting things out and think I have 2 bags of neps left. Which really means that it's time to get some fleeces sorted & get some yarn made! Saw some spindles in the Steam Valley Fiber booth today ....
