The Fleeciest Surprise!

This is Uncle Doc. 
Uncle Doc is a major supporter of my grand adventure into the spinning realm. While at Deer Camp in Texas he has come to know a sheep rancher. He appealed to said sheep rancher to obtain a sheep fleece for me to spin! Here he is showing me the surprise he had.
Here is is in all it's fresh off the sheep glory! Doc says he thinks it was one who dodged the first shearing which explained the pungent fragrance. Which explained why it stayed in a bag in a box until it was shipped up to The Shepherds Mill in Philipsburg, Kansas.
