My buddy Samantha came home from her family vacation with a Coopworth fleece in a big plastic bag! I emailed the lady who owned the sheep, Becky, who has a farm on North Haven island off Maine, and she sent me a photo of Dot–the sheep in question. This was her 2007 fleece. It is lovely. Not too dirty or vm-y and LONG staple (like 6-7 inches?). So far I only spun up one bobbinful and made a skein of heathery yarn for Samantha.
Samantha brought me Dot’s fleece!
