Sharing, Honoring and Remembering – A tale of my personal shawls

I’ve been raising Jacob sheep since 1992. Over the years I have had those few sheep whom where very special to me. To honor those sheep, I create a garment for me to wear from their last fleece. It gives me comfort to honor their time with me.

Here are three shawls I created from Joy Farm Josephine, Haycock Aubrey and Jenny Jump Bella.  Each is handspun from the fleece without carding to give a soft and airy yarn. Each yarn is Navajo plyed to enhance the color and texture. All pieces were woven on a triangle loom.

My wooly friends give me warmth and comfort long after they have gone.Bella ShawlIMG_1254IMG_1255
