1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to assess fleece still on the sheep on: May 11, 2012 12:52:09 PM
One of my neighbours who does wet felting took one of the Gotland x Shetland fleeces last year and said it felted nicely.

I shall have to get hold of the youngsters and try some bits - if I can get past all the gorse spikes sticking out  Roll Eyes

The ewes were Gotland or Gotland x Shetland but the tup was a Black Welsh Mountain so the lambs are all black like the BWM but their fleeces are all very different in texture.

Hi everyone. This is my first post here. I have just started needle felting and am now completely hooked. I have a small flock of sheep and wondered if anyone could advise me on how to assess fleeces whilst still attached  Grin I have 8 of last years lambs who are for eating but only some will go off now. I'd like to be able to keep the ones with better fleeces for needle felting as they won't go off until later in the year and will have been shorn by then. Any ideas on what to look for?
