Oh, wool, how good is that? I have just learnt to spin!
How exciting! Are you going to spin all that wool? Thank you for sharing!
Before reading what was on your picture, I didn't understand what I saw! It looks a bit like my cat when he sleeps on his back!
wow! will you spin it? n♥
Raw wool is so amazing. Curious as to what you're going to make out of it!Nicki
This wool will likely get sold. I have several pounds from last year that I had processed into roving, so I don't really need to keep this. But every year, it's so tempting to keep some. I have to force myself to sell it!
this is very interesting Renee! How do you process it? I have last years and this year's too - but aside from washing it, and trying to spin it (French spindle method - not going very well), I don't know what to do with it.
Francesca, when I process a fleece or a small quantity of wool myself, I wash it in Dawn to get the grease out, then will either card or comb it, depending on how long the staple is. Then I spin on an Ashford Traveler wheel. I started with a drop spindle when I initially started spinning. Last year I sent several pounds of raw wool to a lady I know who has a fiber mill. She processed it into roving for me, as I just didn't have time to do it all myself. I still haven't spun it all!
