I’ve started making 3×5 documentation cards for the various samples in my rare breed sampler box. The information includes a washed lock of the breed, samples of singles, combed and carded 2 ply and 3 ply yarn samplings, along with notes on how the particular breed was to work with.   I hope to knit swatches and weave swatches of the various breeds after getting them all documented.

    Love your card!

    How do you like the California Red? I have found it disappointing. The color comes from the coarser fibers and those are lost if you comb the fiber.

      Thanks, the cards are very helpful. The California Red I had was white. I think it turns white as the sheep ages so I missed out on the color in my sample. I found I really liked the Cheviot and the Clun Forest was somewhat as you described the CR. Peeked at your blog… love the colors you got with the rhubarb root dye.

      Pics on laptop are a start. It does take a lot of time to document, but as with many things I do come back to see what I’ve recorded. Especially when asked …how did you do that? 🙂
