I finally started feeling better, after being pretty much bedridden for a few days, just in time to hang out with my friend. And she has a CAR (I don't - I walk everywhere), and she took us to a rambouillet farm that I've been trying to get to for forever. I've been pining away for some lovely raw wool to work with. And we came home with 4 gigantic bags of soft soft fleece, estimated at ten pounds each, for a price that was so amazing! It's cheap because it's last years wool and he wanted to get rid of it. I contacted him after searching for local rambouillet farms, so I don't think he was really expecting to be able to sell it since it's almost shearing time again.
dark chocolate rambouillet ram fleece (I cannot believe how soft & fine this is):
white ewe, this one is my favorite, super crimpy and soft:
Yay! Look for yarns spun from this lovely local wool soon...but not that soon, because today is post office day.
