Collette and Moon Pie are two of our Wensleydale sheep. Collette arrived as an adult who had not been handled much. She's starting to come over for Vanilla Wafers now. Fruit Loops can be risky-have to get too close to humans for those! You can read more about here

Moon Pie came from the same flock as an orphan/bottle lamb, with her brother Sheldon. Even though she was a bottle lamb, she has grown into a bit of a wary sheep? Silly girl! You can read more about her

The girls sent their Wensleydale wool to our friend Shari for carding into roving. When the fiber got back home, they decided to have me spin some of it into a finer weight 2 ply yarn. And wa-la! 

The yarn boasts a sheen similar to Mohair/angora goat; lots of yardage and it is soft but if you have a sensitivity to wool you should keep this yarn in an outerwear project. This would be easily dyed up too. It is the natural ecru color that shows off a happy sheep, living in the sunshine and romping on pastures.

Skeins include 120 yards/3 ounces each
