In Sheep's Clothing

This one's for all my fellow fiberphiles.

This is a simply beautiful bride photo, no? Check out that dress.

Wait a minute. Notice a certain resemblance between the dress and the bride's companion?

You're right. Glory of glory, a wedding dress made of fleece.

Click on the picture to admire other lovely photos of it (and her) and read the story behind her amazing gown and how her and her husband met. No matter what's wrong in your world, you'll feel a little better after you read it, I swear.

The Lincoln Longwool was the featured breed at this year's Rhinebeck. I saw a lot of this type of sheep along with fleece and Longwool yarn.

Except for the part where they ATE the sheep, it was a lovely story.
