Back in May, I had someone from the Clotho's Handspinners group in Richmond, Virginia ask for a fleece to use for a Rare Breeds Workshop. I was thrilled that they asked me, as I love to share the Lincoln Breed with others! It's also encouraging that many groups are investigating different breeds of sheep (see the previous blog post about the Genesee Valley Spinner's Guild sheep study back in the spring!).
I met with members of the group at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival back in May (which yes, I still have to post pictures of...) and they shared with me photos of the Rare Breeds Workshop that was held this past weekend. I absolutely love seeing what is being done with my wool, so if you have previously purchased some of my wool, please share with me what you've done!
Here are some of the awesome photos from their workshop. To see the full album visit:
Thank you Becky for contacting me, and also Judy for the photos.
