Jacob Sheep at the NY Sheep and Wool Festival
I adore Jacob, one of the first raw fleeces I ever worked with was Jacob. I love how you can use their fleeces in so many different combinations of colours. You can seperate the colours, or blend them. Plus they are so unique looking.
The Festival was fun as usual, lots to look at. I was dissapointed however in that at 10:00 Sunday morning the main gate was out of maps, and I missed the sheep to shawl since they moved it clear across to the other end of the fairgrounds, and of course that was the last place I stopped at. I got to see the weavers just as they were cutting the shawls off the looms. Next year I will be more prepared, and go online first.
