Bah, bah, little lamb…

By spotogspindel | April 10, 2014

My favorite little guy and I visited the neighbors today. They have a big farm with lots of sheep. 60 lambs are already here, and another 200 are expected in the next few weeks.


Anyway. My little guy was more than a little cute when we asked him if he wanted to pet the lambs, and he started clapping his hands. “Å klappa” means both to stroke or to pet and to clap ones hands in Norwegian. He only knows one meaning yet… 


They have three different kinds of sheep here, one of them an old Norwegian type called Spelsau. The quality is sublime, but since it is naturally colored in different treys and browns, it´s hard to sell, as wool-companies usually what the white wool. Simply because it´s what you need to dye it.


And speaking of wool.

I´ve been reading this book the past week, and it is such an inspirational book about wool! I know that sounds a bit geeky, but it really is! I´ve learned a lot of new stuff. I was a pure wool fan before, but now I am truly dedicated to this wonderful material!


“Ren Ull” (Pure wool) is written by Ingunn Grimstad Klepp and Tone Skårdal Tobiasson

    I love wool. My aunt used to spin yarn, it would be a fun thing to try.
