I want some too!!! Cheesy

How many sheep does it take to make a sweater? LOL.

One of these days I want to make entire sleeping pads for us, the ultimate natural mattress. I'll have to look for a local farm...

Aw, thanks Trekky, you just made my day!  I use some of our fleece to fill pet beds.  Our border collie Jenna loves hers.

Isn't that funny that the covering for one of them can make coverings for 2 of us? Wow. Thanks sheep!

Hey, can you use that neck and leg fluff for felting at least?

Yes you can, if you are willing to do the processing.  The thing with leg and neck wool is it's usually very full of veg, and can be more worn.  Same goes for the back wool, some of the time.   Just a lot of picking often.

I had to fill out some 'where I want to be in 20 years' thing for a class this semester, and I put 'Own my own alpaca/sheep farm with fiber studio'. My professor proceeded to ask me what the heck I was talking about. : )
