Feedback on Belle's 2010 Black Romney Fleece

Belle produced this beautiful fleece for our February 2010 shearing. It is a striking black color with silver strands; the silver intensifies the natural luster. One of our customers from Arizona purchased Belle's fleece and here are a couple photos and her comments about the project so far.

"I can't tell you how great it is to be working with such a beautiful fleece! I knew I wanted to do something special with this fleece, so I will be spinning this into yarn during the "Tour de Fleece" (on Ravelry) this summer. My end goal is to have 1400 yards of worsted weight yarn to knit into a cardigan for winter wear this year. "

"As you can see from my pictures, I've only spun one 2 oz skein so far (100 yards), but I am thrilled with how well it's turning out! I still have about 1/3 of the fleece yet to scour, and then I have to pick and card into batts, but it's going so well, I am tempted to start the spinning before the tour starts!!"

Love seeing the batt and skein. They're both, like, "wow" :-)
