My first blue ribbon moorit fleece

Originally uploaded by The Woolley Farm.

This past weekend was the Maine Fiber Frolic. We have a booth there (The Irish Ewe), display our sheep for the Maine Sheep Breeders, and I work in the fleece tent. I gave 2 well-attended talks on “How to choose a fleece” and Brandon gave 4 shearing demos.

We entered several fleeces into the show and placed FIRST in the medium wool division, colored. There were 4 divisions – fine white, fine colored, medium white, medium colored.

I read the judges comments and we got a perfect 100 out of 100! She really liked Caramels fleece. Yay!!!
