More wool

Our teacher is acquainted with a sheep shearer. The wool she brought us on monday had warmed a sheep until the weekend before. It turned out to be from a sheep with curly/zigzag wool!

    1. No, but I don’t remember the name of the breed 😦
      It is very soft, but I don’t know hpw itchy it will become once it’s knitted.
