Sheepskins for sale... not too big so perfect for covering an office chair or lining a pushchair. Colours range from white to very dark brown - none of them are dyed, these are the natural colours of our sheep. These sheep were never sheared so the wool is quite long and retains its natural waviness with soft, uncut ends. For more info, send an email to Rosendal Farm
We stopped at Jussi's carrot farm in Lohja and picked up six sacks of carrots for the sheep then headed over to Perniö to dump some alder at the smokery and then, finally, on to visit Elisa and Minttu at Irma's farm. The girls saw us before we saw them, they were so happy and - honestly - they did recognise us! Minttu is huge now but when I dug my hand into her fur the wool came past my wrists so it's not just meat on her bones. She is very probably going to give birth within a few weeks - some of the other ewes had already given birth a couple of days ago.
It was great to see them both, they looked very well and they are in good company.
Elisa is very happy: she is in a barn with some other "old ladies" so plenty of company. And Minttu has been in with the boys so, who knows, we might have new lambs in the spring. She is also very very happy, full of energy and quite lively. It's nice to get some good news, and we will pop over and visit them soon.
