Wool Batts for Spinning, Needle-Felting, Quilting

 I just finished washing and carding this wool from my sheep. They were sheared the first weekend in March and I am processing all their fleeces myself this year. ALL of them. ALL 19 fleeces. I am loving the way they are turning out too. This batt is gray  because I carded the black and white wool from my sheep together. It is so soft. I am selling wool batting in 1 pound batches for $20.00 each. The wool bating can be spun up, needle-felted, or used as batting in wool quilts.
 I have been having a lot of fun dyeing my wool and experimenting with dyeing techniques. I sell these hand-dyed 4 ounce batts of wool fiber for $10.00 each. they can also be spun into yarn , needle-felted, or ????
This skul is from a 2 horned ram lamb and already cleaned and mounted on stained wood. The skull has a barbed wire hanger. It sells for $80.00.
 I loved handling this pretty pink wool and carded some Wensleydale locks into it for fun. I am happy with how it turned out. These 4 ounce batts also sell for $10.00 each.
 Just look at these colors ! I can't help smiling when I enter my little wool-works shop .
 Red hand-dyed Jacob Sheep wool from my own sheep with Wensleydale locks carded into it. Reminds me of Christmas candy canes.
All of these items and more can be purchased here ~ My Spotted Sheep Shop. If you have any questions about any of these items or my shop please feel free to leave a comment. Thank-you for taking time to view my shop.

Wool Fiber ~ For Sale

 I've been busy in my new wool-works shop carding wool I dyed this past winter. I love being surrounded by the rich colors of the new wool batts I've made for spinning, needle-felting, or lovkerhooking.
 Each of these wool batts weighs at least 4 ounces and they sell for $10.00 each.

 I also carded some blue batts, with varying shades of blue carded together...
 ... and red wool carded with Wensleydale locks.
 These wool batts, or rolags, remind me of candy canes.

 My next carding project is the pink wool you can see in the shelf. I am ready to work with spring colors now , we've had snow here at Laughing Dove Farm since the weekend after last Thanksgiving.
 It snowed again today and we had another 4 inches added to the almost 2 feet of standing snow. It was cozy in my little shop as I carded wool and listened to the radio.
The view out my window earlier today. Beautiful and cold.
