🐑  Pearl is a ewe with light gray to charcoal gray fleece. Her mate is Knit. So they are called "Knit and Pearl"  They are Black Hog Island sheep.  Only 10% of Hog Island's are black.  Hog Island is a heritage breed on the Critical list.  These came from stock from Mt. Vernon.
🎨 I use a Drum-carder to make this roving by hand in small batches.  When I pack it into the bag I use a zig-zag pattern so you can keep it in the bag while spinning.  I put a lock on the end so you can see the staple length.  Just pull the end out of the bag, close the bag a little and spin away.  See how I pack roving: VIDEO
🧴 I used my favorite wool wash,  Unicorn Power Scour. and Unicorn Fiber Rinse to help with static electricity.  They leave the wool soft, clean, and smelling great. 
🧶 Hog Island wool is a delight to spin and will create durable yarn excellent for many projects.  Knit, Crochet, or Weave.
