As an afterthought to my last post, I decided to take a picture of the black Shetland fleece I am working on. The difference is so amazing. It is the softest wool I have ever worked on. It came from a sheep named "Blackie" from a farm in Pilot Mountain, NC. The lady I bought it from used to have a very nice yarn shop in Pilot, but closed it after her Mother died. Makes me want some Shetland sheep.
