Hi guys I need some serious help, my Wool has been taken. Someone took it from me yesterday when I, well I don’t remember, I think I blacked out. Luckily I am known as the detective around the farm. You may have heard of my work in such cases as the boy who cried wolf and ba ba Black Sheep.
In any case, I know someone took it because its so valuable. Wool has been used for clothing and other fabrics for over twelve thousand years. For starters wool is widely used in clothing from knitwear such as socks to clothing used in suits and costumes. They use wool for clothing, blankets, upholstery, insulation, mattress & pillow filler , carpets, rugs and much more. They even use my wool in face cream now a-days. I may only be two years old in sheep years, but even I know that i’m a commodity around here.
Yesterday the sun was out and I felt oh so warm, but today is different. I feel very cold, maybe I should borrow one of those new blankets my owners got today. I heard them say they dyed the fabric the perfect shade Red. I know it’s not my wool though, because my wool is obviously white and its not a “fabric” or what ever they were saying.
Oh I forgot to mention, my name is “in you go”. I hear my owners call it out when they want me to go into the fences in yard. Clearly i’m his favorite because he keeps saying it over and over.
You know what? Maybe its that pesky little dog, they have jumping on my back everyday. I hate that dog, and our owner counts 1 by 1 as he does so. I think the dogs name is herd, because my owner says herd em boys and then he and two of his brothers run around and bullying us into a fenced off area. I bet hes snuggling with my wool right now. Bah, I’ll get him back by ducking when he goes to jump on me so he falls right into the mud.
I clearly see everything as us sheep have rectangular pupils and can see between 270 to 320 degrees around me, so I’m pretty hard to “sneak one by”. I see its time to eat, maybe I will debrief you again tomorrow when I conduct a follow up investigation.
