Shorn

You may not know this but there is a technique to sheep shearing. It’s very complicated and a good shearer can make a pretty good living traveling from farm to farm. The goal is to get the whole fleece off in one piece, so it retains the shape of the animal it’s from. This one is from a demonstration at RI Sheep and Wool.Don’t worry, it’s not the skin, just the hair. Impressive handiwork.
