I bought this Romney X fleece at this year's MD Sheep and Wool. I bought it because I overheard someone tell someone else that they love the stuff. I snatched up the bag and felt like I had won a prize.
In the bag and during washing it seemed like any other wool. I knew it wasn't going to be especially soft but I can deal with that.
It cleaned very easily and took dye well.
So far so good.
When I tried combing it but it seemed to dissolve into thin air. It wouldn't pull into roving.
Then I tried carding it and it exploded in the carder.
The resulting batt is like cotton candy.
I managed to gently pull the batt into very wispy nests.
Spinning was tricky at first because it wants to pull apart, but once I got the hang of it, I enjoyed it. It is like nothing I have ever worked with. Nothing.
