Talking Anyone want to knit my sheep a sweater???

We rescued a dwarf sheep. She isn't a mini-breed she is an actual dwarf (or stunted maybe). She is about 1/4 the size she is supposed to be!
SO since I know many of you are experienced with making cat sweaters, I thought maybe someone would whip me up a woolie for my woolie girl... it finally started to rain here (after a two month drought) and she looks cold!

I would try a sheep blanket over wool, mainly because you don't want it to become sodden which would only add to her being cold.

Did you just shear her? Usually that is the only reason to blanket or spandex unless there is some other coat condition or you just want to keep her clean before a show. Otherwise their wool provides enough insulation.

Does the sweater need to be made from wool? I would think fleece would be easier to launder.

Ok ladies working on pics She is camera shy but there is one from her former farm in the homesteading forum. She is a x-breed and has some hair sheep genes so she is shedding (is that what it is called in sheep???) a bit. It isn't actually very cold here but I would feel better about her having a coat.

The sweater is tongue in cheek refering to a thread which has been around for ages and is bumped in the transactions area where a woman wanted to buy very expensive wool super cheap to knit a sweater for her cat which passed.....

You HAVE to read it,it is a classic! Everyday you don't have a dead cat in your freezer that you have to knit a sweater for is a good day.
