The 2021 Tour de Fleece ended yesterday (July 18), and after 23 straight days of spinning yarn, I'm ready for a (small) break. My goal for this year's Tour was to sample some of my raw fleeces and work on raw fleece from the 'Shave 'em to Save 'em' project too.
Breeds Spun: Shetland, Icelandic, Jacob/Columbia, California Red/Romeldale, CVM (California Variegated Mutant), CVM/Merino, Shropshire, Dorset Horn, Gulf Coast Native, BFL (Bluefaced Leicester), Navajo Churro, Florida Cracker, & Hog Island.
