That awful black shetland!





I hate the stuff, uh..the awful black shetland...but Earl loves it!! I took a photo of the wool on my son's drawing table and turned around on the computer to download the photo. My son said "look at Earl". There he was, wallering in the wool. Donald took the photo of Earl. I posted a photo a year ago of him in the green box with the carded fleece. Must be the smell. I ended up with 14 skeins. Have not weighed it yet but each skein is usually around 2 oz. I'll figure out what to do with it later (but I won't be giving it to Earl!). He had a lot more fun with the stuff than I did. Did I mention that the last 4 or 5 carded bats had rose bush thorns in it!!! That's a first for me. I've had to deal with sandspurs (I lived in South Florida for many years and am familiar with those!), but rose bush thorns (BIG ones) are a first for me!
