This farm hand taught us all about wheat and flax fibers which was very interesting. When the flax fibers are all stripped an cleaned and ready to be made into fabric it is the color of blond hair and that is where the term "flaxen colored" hair comes from. But we also learned that during one of the steps of preparing the flax, the tow is brushed out which is a very very light yellow whitish color, and that is where the term "towhead" comes from. fascinating.
This poor little sheep got lost from the rest of the bunch and ran circles around us calling out for his buddies, I thought it was a little bit funny that none of them answered him, but he eventually found them.
