Edwin said you were doing the research --- which breed did you finally
decide on.

By the way, I got the Soay fleece from Blue Mountain.  She sent two
fleeces.  They have short staples but are spinnable.  I'm really pleased.

Soay sheep, (by the way and I hope I don't sound like a know - it all cuz I
don't)  are the oldest documented sheep in Europe (600 BC)  They are a rare
sheep breed and a few farms in the US raise them.  They are totally
adorable and very easy maintenance sheep.

Anyway, Kestral - which breed did you decide on?
