Two rare sheep breeds and their fleeces are reviewed in this podcast, the Black Welsh Mountain sheep, and the Clun Forest. The lovely sheep photo shown here are those Clun Forest sheep.
Thanks to Ken and Oogie at Desert Weyr for their breeding of Black Welsh Mountain sheep. Oogie was an internet aquaintance and part of the rare breeds exchange I did many years ago. She provided the samples of fiber from this breed that I talk about in the podcast.
The book by Deborah Robson The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook, is shown here on Amazon.
The closing song is by Marina Tihvinskaya and is called Celtic Song, but is not what you expect at all! Enjoy! Marina writes: "please let your listeners know that my website is www.marinatihvinskaya.net and the name of the album is My Favourite Dependence."
Until later, happy
