Baa, Baa Black Sheep...

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep
Have you any wool?
Yes, ma'am, yes, ma'am,
Two bags full.
One for Lin, and one for Christina,
and none for the little boy who lives down the lane.

Yes, can you believe it? The mysterious shepherd stopped by the shop this past Tuesday and brought some more clean, carded Shetland roving. AND it was a beautiful black.

Lin's heart was stolen by Neva's fleece - a dusky charcoal black. I was smitten with Esther's fleece - a beautiful dark black color.

We have begged the shepherd not to return for a while. Our little feet can only spin so fast and our fleece budgets can only buy so much. But this stuff is worth it! It is so soft and clean.

I think I have my winter spinning stock! Happy Spinning!
