                hi woolysheep you are so lucky using your own wool - my dad used to shear sheep and we always had bits of wool about the house i would love my own spinning wheel but just don't have the time maybe when i finish work in 23 years time i might take it up lol
                while i knit i think

                  Hi and Barbara!

                  ...and Jan, how spooky, I have 2 cats and my fella has a siberian husky! We dunno if its safe to move them (and us!) in together yet though - the dog likes the cats a bit too much and one of my cats freaks if she sees any dog

                    Hi Barbara and welcome,

                    Are you a spinner then? I am but I don't keep sheep as it seems less trouble to buy the wool! I can shear though.

                      Hi Barbara

                      to the forum.

                      What breed of sheep do you have. I have a herd of alpacas, we knit the wool into scarves. In September we bought some Lincolnshire Longwool sheep (have just finished lambing) & we are wondering what to do with their fleeces. Do you hand spin you fleeces to take them to a mill?

                          Hi
                          How funny you should say that, there was an article in our local paper last week about an elderly couple who over the years had collected all the fur from their two dogs ( both died). They now both have jumpers made out of the fur! Bizarre!

                            It's not as unusual as people think actually. I'm a handspinner and am often asked to spin pet hair. Most spinners will have done dog and cat at some time.
