Anyone going then going back your way I can give fleece to for you?

I have about 15, I think!  If you'd been there, I was just going to say have a rootle about in the wool sheet in the back of our truck and see what you wanted, but if any of your friends have space to get them to you, I can send them all, but obviously you'd then be stuck with them.  Two of them are greyish from older sheep, I can take those out if you want, they are on the top.  I'm afraid there is a bit of VM in there too!

Have located spinning / sheepy friend to assess / collect fleeces from you , if you are still able to bring them?

Am emailing you both.  She can bring them all, she says, if suitable  :excited: :spin:

Did anyone get anything nice ? We bid on a few of the Muircock GGs including   Tim but he went for £370.
As we took the Trailer with us we went on to collect jasper and Rosie the 2 New GGs  ::)
