How many is that? Cool.

that is one animal. that sexy naked beast in the photo

oops there is a photo series of me shearing the one animal that I posted later

@btroje This one, right? [agnostic.com]

Wow! What do you do with it?

I felt and crochet and spin in a primitive way. I was building a house and just got the space to work with it so I have been hoarding it a long time

@btroje With a drop spindle?

@Nottheonlyone I have some drop spindles and a Navajo spindle but I have a spinning wheel called a Mach 3 Spinolution for when I get to that point. It will spin a thicker yarn with the coarser fleece I have and use it faster. I think it would take me to the end of my life to spin the amount of fleece I have with a drop spindle

@btroje I was wondering! Nice!

@btroje If you have this much from one animal, and it seems you have a lot of animals from the photo series, do you sell any of this?

@bingst people around here want me to give it to them but if someone wants to buy some I will sell it
