Today I have a bag full of this grey fibre.
We have two grey minature schnauzers , one curly and one not !!! A friend who could not distinguish one from the other made up a ditty.
'Islay St Claire has short curly hair , the one they call Skye is as straight as a dye '
Can you see which is which ? (DH is going grey too , he's the distinquished one in the middle !!)
So as we are going away and staying in the van and in close confines with the mutts they have had a shampoo and bit of a trim today.
Beautiful and soft and shiny . So who's coat is it ? Islay ,Skye's,or Tony's !!?
None of them ................ it's Gotland lambswool and its soooooooo beautiful .
(I think the dogs look as though they need that fire lit !!)
I had ordered it months ago and waited especially until they were shearing the lambs and it arrived today so i just had to wash it too :)
I have never spun Gotland fleece, before tops yes but this bears no resemblance to that dry, rough ,boring grey top at all.
Tops/rovings are okay in their place but give me a quality fleece any day and this is quality in all its shiny grey hues.
I gather that grey is in again this autumn ? well of course it will be with me at least ;) Give me grey any day , life in the old dog yet ;)and I LOVE grey.
