Off To The Fair

The Nevada State Fair is starting this Wednesday August 20th. I have a few shetland wool items that will be entered this year. Two skeins of yarn, one white, my wether K.G. with 20% silk added "bling" and one moorit skein from Valla my yearling ewe. In the felt class I'm entering my purse made with Annie's fleece and a bowl of felt balls. The felt balls are drying and not made with shetland. Then in the fleece show I've entered two shetland fleece. K.G.'s five pound fleece and below
Hue's fleece. Hue is another wether no longer with us. Below is his beautiful silver fleece weighting in at 4.9 pounds, these are skirted weights. Nothing like a big wether fleece for the fair. If Sharon doesn't enter any fleece this year we may not have any competition in the primitive fleece class. With no competition in Nevada I'm not sure how these shetland fleece would fair at some big show like Black Sheep. Posted by Mim August 18,2008

OMG! That fleece is AWESOME!!! I love the color variations and the crimp. I think it would do well, anywhere!

In looking at the pictures, I'd say your fleeces would have a place at ANY wool show, regardless of where it's held. Wow. Beautiful crimp and I really kind of want to roll around in that just for some love. And the skeins...zomg. And the purse and...and...WANT! :D Totally fantastic, and thanks for sharing the pics!

Gorgimous!! I want to roll around in it! I think you would do ok at BSG - the crimp and luster of your fleeces are to die for!!

I resemble that remark! Hate to see pictures of gorgeous, crimpy, roll-around-in-it-feel-good fleece, leaves me feeling like I've been left hanging.... lol

I agree with everyone; I think you would do ANYwhere!

I don't think our wool show will ever be what it was without Wayne and Tracey. I agree - think BSG.

I've got everything crossed that I can cross, Mim! Good luck at the Fair and let us know all about it!

(Was Hue a Shetland or a cross?)
