Alice is White Gum Wool’s poster girl–the face on the yarn label.  It was Alice who taught me about nutritional wisdom, watching her graze while she was recovering from a bad lambing and was constrained to a grazing “walker” to keep her balance as she healed.  At 13 years old, Alice is the old lady of the flock, but is still going strong, though she's managed to lose both of her signature horns ;-(.  The other day I watched her gallop up the paddock with the rest of the flock, looking half her age! I can't believe that I missed keeping Alice's fleece this year--drat!!  She did have a green nose dot, but somehow got overlooked.  At least this year we have Alice, Jr's fleece.  

TEST RESULTS for 2015: 17.8 micron diameter, 72 mm length, 45 Nktx strength (40 is considered commercially spinnable).  Alice's fleece weight was 2.1 kg/4.6 pd in 2015.
