Here is one of the Ewes with her lamb of about 6-8 hours. The lambs were almost fully black, with beautiful tight curls of fleece. I resisted the temptation to get out my clippers and start shearing, but...
I couldn't resist a cuddle! (Gosh that's a bad picture of me!) D also fell in love with them... so much so they had to do a head count as we left!!
We had a laugh with the Farmer and his wife... we said that we fully approved of August's stock already... the amazing thing will be to see how 'steel' grey the ends of the wool turn as the lambs grow, but you can already see how amazing the curls will be. Very inspiring stuff!
If you are interested in Gotland fleece, contact me at http://www.sarastexturecrafts.com/ and I will point out the Yearling stock I have available from January's clip.
