In the Works: Local Merino Lamb

Washington State is not typically the place you would expect to find Merino. But, if you travel east to Ellensburg as I did recently with my family in tow, you might just find some. Here's a few snapshots from the day I acquired two enormous wool bales. 

And where is all that Merino now? It's in the works! We've already got one bale washed and ready for carding and the second is ready for skirting. I have been dreaming about what to do with this amazing batch of fiber for weeks, and although I'm tempted to tell you all my plans, I think you'll just have to wait for it to be revealed after it's all skeined up.
