At it again! Sheep #2 for the weekend. She was a hanging weight of a whopping 28#! In the end it is a small amount that goes to the freezer, but it is a step towards self sustainability for us! #homestead #soaysheep #meatinthefreezer

We had these 3 delinquents arrive today! Start of the sheep herd #soaysheep #whatthehellhaveigotmyselfinto #smallholding

About 15 years ago, we gave our 8 year old daughter a choice - a trip on vacation or 2 Soay sheep (something she'd been requesting). Note: one of those sheep is still living!
:
She chose the sheep and so began our foray into sheep farming. Her flock grew to 25 at one point as she bought more and had lambs.
:
Soay wool is not soft and is full of kemp and, even though you don't have to shear them (you can roo the wool), it isn't fun to go around collecting wool from the barnyard that's full of dirt and try to clean it.:
One time we sent it to a fiber mill that sent it through the comber many, many times to remove dirt and vegetable matter (still left about 20%)) and cost a fortune. This yarn was the result.
:
And so I knit said daughter this poncho. I won't mention the pattern as it wasn't written well - probably due to some translation errors from Finnish. :
I can't even imagine the value of this but, fortunately, my daughter is priceless!
