You have GREAT results, Juliann! Even your two ewes who are over 30 FEEL softer than 30, which is an important point to note. By contrast, my two two-year-olds who are over 30 microns feel even COARSER; THAT'S bad. :-/

Those are WONDERFUL results, Juli! Even if you have some that are higher, as long as you can improve upon them, and they're nice and typey, that's nothing to be upset about :)

Thanks for posting these wonderful results, I love to see what other flocks are doing.

Juliann said...

Thanks, ladies. I was really bummed, but I feel a little better now. The fleeces show good Shetland character, most feel pretty soft, just gotta get them finer. :)

Ah, Juliann, you are doing great things there. Great numbers.
I love buying from you, you've always shown the upmost in integrity.
I only hope to have a herd as nice as yours some day.
