The kids suggested this name, and I think it appropriate, as when we brought her home, a large bag of sheep fleece came too ;)
She is a gorgeous Ashford Traveller about 15-20 years old.
With no knowledge of spinning, other than a great interest, youtube and one book that I was reading, I asked for tips at the shop when I purchased her. It was suggested that I start with a raw fleece, as due to the lanolin, it made the fibers more 'grabby' and easier to learn how to spin.
So I headed home with my supplies and started to play. Using a comb to tease and clean the fleece as I worked on it, I just jumped right in! I managed to get 2 bobbins about 1/2 filled yesterday, and left them to sit overnight. Then I plied them together this morning. My first skein of yarn! Yay :) It works out to about 20m lol, so not very much. But I made it and that is all that matters.
I have another 2 bobbins sitting, and they look much more uniform today - so I will try and ply them tomorrow.
