Sheldon is one of the youngest of our sheep- he arrived with his twin Moon Pie and friend Puzzle during a cold spring. Sheldon and Moon Pie had lost their mom. Puzzle was sick and needed to be figured out.
Sheldon and Moon Pie bunked in the back porch til they were big sheep and moved outside. Puzzle stayed inside with me most of the time until he felt better- he has a big heart murmur/hole in his heart.
Sheldon is very dedicated to Moon Pie, even if it is teasing her and jumping out at her around corners to scare her. Naughty little boys... read more about Sheldon
Sheldon's Wensleydale fleece is so soft and shiny. The locks average 6+ inches and I rarely share Sheldon's fleece- shame on me- but he made me promise.
This is my favorite yarn to spin. I spin each lock separately around a secure core thread. It reminds me of sheep 'lashes.'
The yarn is next to the skin soft. It would be very cute used for doll hair, santa beards and maybe dreds? Of course it would knit/crochet into a beautiful project or trim for a larger project-lots of unique possibilities!
Skeins include 10 bulky yards each
