It snowed very steadily today with an accumulation of over one foot. I watched while Windy (a llama/alpaca mix) watched my friend plowed out my driveway since the diesel in my tractor gelled with the low temperatures. I kept busy by satisfying my tactile senses with sorting fiber into length, micron width, grade and color. Some of the fleeces were fine and felt really good. After I finish this client's fiber harvest I plan on working on sorting sheep fleeces to become a certified wool sorter. I love natural animal fiber.
