That pile of stringy wet Merino that I washed last week took forever to dry. It always amazes me how dirty it looks when it is wet and how clean and fluffy it becomes when dry. It is a soft as it looks and you can't say that about a lot of fiber.
There are not a lot of identifiable locks in the pile, so I think combing is out. I am going to tease it up a bit more and then run it through the drum carder for some batts. I wanted to use this to add yardage to the other Merino I have on the wheel, but plying combed Merino with carded Merino? I am not so sure about that.
