August 11, 2007, Skagit County Fair - RESERVE BEST IN SHOW FLEECE is won by an EverRanch Shetland Ewe Fleece! BEST IN SHOW is won by an EverRanch Finnsheep Ewe Fleece!!!|
Most of the fleeces are sold and/or processed. We have some lovely light grey Shetland roving from Electra and some 75:25 Shetland:Alpaca roving in white. More natural colored Shetland:Alpaca blend rovings are coming. We have 7 colors already in stock. This roving makes stunning natural Fair Isle patterns.
We expect to have fall shorn fleeces available in October. Fall fleeces are so nice and clean without winter's hay in them!
I have lovely sport weight yarn in light brown-grey from Hortense (BFLxBL). Hortense's fleece was one of our most requested fleeces. Strong, lustrous, heathery grey. It is great for weaving, knitting and felting.
A selection of roving from my personal stash is listed at the end of the fleeces.
