I'm finally getting to those 15 fleeces that are in bags, taking up half of the living room. It always amazes me how large the fleece is, all laid out, compared with the size of the sheep.
And, of course, the cut side of a fleece reveals the beauty of the wool I've been waiting a year for.
Now to wash it and get spinning!
I spent the cool of the morning skirting three fleeces; putting the dung-tagged wool in a wheelbarrow for "woolch" (wool mulch--it's great for plants and trees) and some of the less-desirable-for-spinning in a bag to wash to use for felting projects. I've skirted 7 fleeces so far; almost halfway to reclaiming the living room!
Fleeces for sale are up on the website now.
