Back from Turkmenistan

Turkmen woman combing wool fiber

Back in the USA!
I returned from Turkmenistan on Monday night – the trip was amazing!
Will have a slideshow ready to post soon.
The photo is from the Carpet Expo – it is of a Turkmen woman combing the fleece of the Saryja sheep. The wool of this fat-tailed sheep is used in the beautiful Turkmen carpets.
