Ba, Ba, White Sheep Have You Any Wool?
As spinners gather, usually folks share their love of fiber/fleece and what can be produced. At the last spinners meeting, Stephanie presented information on the East Friesian sheep. She shared a handout chock full of fascinating information. These sheep are large framed with distinguishing characteristics of pink noses and rat tails. In addition to producing long wool suitable for carpet making, they are one of the best milking sheep in the world. I could go on and on, but if you missed this meeting, get a copy of the handout, it was wonderful.
