I’ve been spinning for over 10 years now, but somehow managed to skip over spinning with Coopworth wool. Recently, I was pleased to be able to latch onto a couple of fleeces from Jim and Martha McGrath at Deer Run Sheep Farm in West Virginia.  Wow, was I happy with what popped up out of the box:

This is Sid the ram’s fleece:

And this is Agate’s wavy fleece:

The Coopworth is a relatively new breed, a cross of Romney and Border Leicester, both breeds I like to work with. I am very  much looking forward to spinning with these!
