Remember Nora the Shetland fleece that was so full of hay? Here she is after a scouring and a dye bath.
I gave her a spin on the drum carder to help pull out all those bits of dried plant stuff stuck in her wool. She must have liked a good roll in the hay. Naughty girl.
Before you card it you have to tease it all apart. Lots of the stuff falls out then. It falls out all over you. Thank goodness it was a windy day. That always helps but I still needed a shower when I was done. I was really itchy.
I made it through three pretty batts before it got too hot to work outside anymore. Yes, I said hot. On Saturday it was blistering and I was wishing for winter. Now it's back to cold and I am missing the heat. You just can't make me happy when it comes to the weather.
