See the big wooly pile on the ground? That's the merino fleece my parents scored in Kauai. You can see an arm in there for size reference.
I am totally doing this without permission but here is the email I got from my mom. I just loved reading it. Thanks mom and dad!
"Okay....we "sheep'd" the sheep today by FedEx and you should get it "in 2 days." You will laugh at the packaging as 2 of us practically sat on the box. Let me know when you get it and if it's worth getting more. It will probably expand quite a bit upon opening so consider yourself warned. Baa, miss ewe! Love, Maaaa"
