Time to get the woolens out...



Temps are dropping.  It is hinting of snow...  Wool and I, well all of us and wool are good friends here at Maple Valley off-grid Farm.

How bout you?  Do you have some favorite winter attire?  Oh yes, and my shearling sheep slippers too...

Well, I don't need winter clothes, but you make it awful cozy sounding. I have no doubt you will know how to stay warm and comfy over winter.

Wool and I don't get along too awfully well, it makes me itch like a son of a gun. I steeer clear unless it's lined...debbie

Unfortunately, wool and our family don't mix...the itching almost would send us to the moon...or pullout our hair:-)

Our temps don't go down below 0 celsius very often...so not too warm of clothes are needed...but waterproof is more our way of things:-)

All wool is not created equal! There are many breeds of sheep..some better meat producers and others produce better wool. Most people are not really allergic to the wool. It might be just a poor quality of wool to possibly the dyes and processing.

I love the idea of wool. Thankfully, it's not really necessary here. My skin just doesn't appreciate the texture. Just thinking about it makes me itch.
