April Foolishness

I know it's lambing time and I will admit to being anxious to see more of the lambs from our new ram, but all I can think about is fiber!



We sheared a few weeks ago and while I was able to get through skirting most of the white Corriedale fleeces, the turn in the weather and other commitements have kept my hands out of the natural colors (greys, blacks, browns) I like to skirt outside in the natural light and it just hasn't been possible. But maybe today. I have reserved fleeces that need to make their way to their new homes and some fleeces that I am planning to keep for myself that I want to get my hands in and on.

Some of our raw fleeces (like Amanda's pictured above) go on to be billowing clouds of vanilla cream frosting like the combed top below, processed at Zeilingers Mill here in Michigan


Don't you just want to fall right in and roll around in all of that fibery goodness?

That is my April Foolishness ;) And if you are interested in some of your own (Serenity Farms wool, that is) please feel free to contact us at serenityfarmswool at yahoo dot com. We still have some raw fleeces available, as well as some of the combed top you see pictured above.

Oh boy...Francie's fleece looks gorgeous! Do the adults have longer fleeces?

This fleece looks lovely!

Do I still have a reserve on Charlotte's fleece? I have LOVED every fleece from Charlotte. So soft and lovely!
