Felting is what occupies the shepherdess’s free moments at the farm. Imagination is the only limitation when it comes to creating with fiber; the only rule set is that the object be useful (Okay, sometimes the rule is interpreted broadly).

Felting begins with roving and batting from the flock fleeces.

Here’s what we now have on hand. Note that roving is not “top” (further carded to remove short fibers, which provides only the longest fibers that are easiest to spin into yarn).
