Made with Wool

During a year, sheep grow their delightful fleeces, and we watch as the fleeces become larger and larger. Then the fleeces are sheered or rooed, washed, picked, carded and spun into yarn. All this yarn and so many ideas about how to use it! Although it would be great fun to knit lots of sweaters, that is not practical for someone living in Texas. So instead of sweaters, the yarn is used for presents given to very special people. The projects on this page show the variety of natural Shetland sheep colors as well as dyed Shetland yarn.
