Portrait of a Lady

or, more accurately, of six ladies.

Since about a week, our household has four new members:


I also managed to get some better portraits of the two older ladies:


The two brown are, we were told, purebred Finn, while the white ladies are Finn x Texel in varying proportions. (Or, possibly Finn x Shropshire x Texel - obviously you have to be a spinner to take notice of sheep breeds...)
I have yet to see the x wool sans sheep, but they seem to have a slightly more defined lock formation.
I wrote about sampling the Finn wool here. Fortunately (or do I mean UN- ?) it will be another half-year until I have any white x wool to sample...

Your menagerie grows! Do you still have chickens, too?
