    Most of the white sold. Bought a better spinning wheel and spun up the leftover. Sold all the natural roving after awhile.

    6 fleeces trashed, 6 given away, rest kept and washed.

    I'd show you what I have but I'm sure you have seen plenty of bags of dirty fiber.

    Going to use all my old yarn up for hats n scarves.
    Will then start doing the same for the newer yarn and sell them.

    That is beautiful work. Knowing that it came from your own sheep just makes it all the better.
