IMG_6945Our Katahdin hair sheep have been shedding their fleeces as the weather turns warmer. Most of the time they shed little bits and pieces here and there all over the pasture. One of our rams, however, shed his fleece mostly in one piece. Well, Opal found it in the pasture and quickly set to work combing and cutting and making one of her creations. At first, she said she wanted to make a vest for “Gammy” (my mom) which would have been hysterical. But as she worked on it and the fleece got smaller and smaller, the vest became precisely Opal-sized. So, there you have it… IMG_6946 IMG_6947 IMG_6948 IMG_6949

  1. Tell Opal that she seems to be a budding fashion designer 🙂 her creation is very innovative & soooo cute on her .. Now picturing Gammy wearing it is cracking me up, but if Opal gave it to her, she would wear it indeed 🙂

    • Oh, I know! I’m keeping my eyes open for more intact shed fleeces out in the pasture… then maybe Gammy could get a vest after all!
