Ba Ba Black Sheep Have You any Wool?

                                   Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

Tina had her first hair cut a few days ago.  I skirt heavily as I go, and I go really slow, as I shear by hand.  There was one bag of prime, one of britch, and one of neck wool.  Since this is her first year lambs wool, it is very nice.

I ended up with about a pound and a half of the prime and neck.  I carded it up in shades of grey.  I ought to sell it, but am contemplating making myself a vest instead.
