Fleece At The Hookstown Fair!
Wild Rose Farm - 1st Place Dorset Fleece At The Hookstown Fair
It's fair season again and that means taking fleeces to the Hookstown Fair. Here is a Dorset fleece from ewe lamb #118. I can't wait to see what her 2 year old fleece will look like next spring. Funny thing with the fleeces is that this is the only one we had to show. The other Dorset fleeces were processed into wool quilt batts this summer by Zeilinger Wool. This one eluded me, likely because it was the nicest Dorset fleece we had and it was in the "spinning fleeces for sale" group!
