meet the herd #3
Things have settled down a little at the moment...An update on Sienna- It seems like we are looking at some arthritis making her a little slow but she is still holding on. What a strong little lady she is!
So back to our regularly scheduled herd rotation. Next on the list is
This little guy holds a special place in my heart based solely on his fiber. He is 6 years old and his name Akab is Lakota for spare, meaning small. He is quite small in stature but he makes up for that! His fiber is super soft and shiny. The staple length is amazing. I had to spin some by hand it is so lovely. And apparently in demand as I have absolutely none on the shelf in the store. This hat was made from a skein in my personal stash and is now available in the store. It is just as soft and shiny as it looks! I guess I need to make his fiber a priority on the processing list! Thank you, Akab, for your lovely, soft, warm, squishy contribution to the farm!
