Sheep Visit

Today we had a visit from a Shepherdess names Jane, with a small number of sheep to learn about the different types of wools that different breeds of sheep create. With her she bought three different breeds of sheep including  Poll Dorsets, Shetland and Lavender sheep. After visiting the sheep, we then had a talk with her about spinning wool, and about the different types of wools you can retain from each breed of sheep, depending on there colour, thickness and texture. It was interesting to learn about this type of material, however most of the talk was about spinning, which I have never seen done. And about knitting and crochet which I don’t know a lot about. However, it was a nice day.
