Little Lambs

Yesterday's post was a young lamb. Taken straight on it didn't really look very lamb-like. The lambs in both today's and yesterday's photo belong to my friend, Farmer Judy. These lambs are Merinos which are known for their fine soft wool.
Black wool is usually discarded by commercial buyers because it can't be dyed Good-quality dark fleece is highly esteemed, however, by handspinners and knitters, crafts people who can turn naturally shaded brown, gray, and black wool into beautiful creations. Nature has already colored it beautifully and the colors are permanent and won't run.
