Rosa Icelandic Ewe

March 5, 2010


After a year of felting with a vast array of wools my favorite is from Rosa. The wool is so buttery soft and yummy that it felts almost by itself, dyes beautifully and is super strong. I designed and constructed several holiday items from Rosa wool, all well loved.  I have used her fleece in several of my vessels and all who hold the vessels, comment on how luscious the vessel feels in hand.

I  have such a fond affection for her, I wanted to post a couple of pics of Rosa from the farm of David Grotte.

Today I received an email from David Grotte, Rosa’s owner, the Whippoorwill Farm which was interview by a TV station on the shearing of their animals.  Have a look, it was fun.
