This is Rose Ayana. She has the thickest wool of the two and it is VERY curly.
This is Joanna. Shetland sheep are a heritage breed and are known for their quality of wool in hand spinning.
As you can see they are a lot darker underneath than they are on top. After we get the wool off, in order to get it ready for spinning it needs to be washed several times and then carded.
After we were done shearing we headed over to the St. Louis Zoo.
