Sheepishly Lovely

My husband has a friend at work that owns 2 sheep. One white and one black. I hear that they roam his yard and sleep in the driveway where they nearly get hit..daily.
I know this isn't a good picture. To much sunshine.. imagine that?! The White is lovely with a long staple of about 4-5 in. They are so clean! I'm so excited I don't even know what to write. The black looks like its been picked threw. Its about half as much as the white. The black sheep is rather old and the owner thinks her wool is no good. Or, only good for rugs. Which is fine. I was thinking of making a rug.
As soon as I find a box these are off to Dawns custom carding
