A special thanks to Scott Nutting, who came to our Spinning gathering to share his knowledge and love of Wensleydale sheep, and even a bigger thanks for sharing some fleece from his sheep.
Now look at this breed!
Have you ever seen anything so beautiful in your life? Their fleece is so soft and looks like long spiral ringlets. His sheep are black, apparently Wensleydales come in white and black. I cannot wait to comb some as I think the staple is over 6 inches and might be a bit too long to card. I’ll post pictures of the fleece soon.
