According to other news outlets, Chris’ fleece yielded enough for thirty sweaters.

Thirty sweaters worth of wool shorn from overgrown sheep found wandering the Australian wilderness

An undated handout photo obtained on September 2, 2015 from the RSPCA shows a giant woolly sheep on the outskirts of Canberra as Australian animal welfare officers put out an urgent appeal for shearers after finding the sheep with wool so overgrown its life was in danger. The very woolly merino sheep was spotted wandering on its own near Mulligan Flats, a grassy woodland just outside the capital Canberra, by bushwalkers who alerted local RSPCA officers.

I live in a world of mixed media, primarily focused on yarn and fabric. Currently, I'm exploring the world of fashion design, specifically dart manipulation along with bead embroidery. I enjoy translating my work through the use of photography.
