I particularly liked the last part of your post. Loved seeing the fiber from the sheep. You are a very generous ladyBlessings,Betsy
Looked like a very busy day as well! How neat that they put pictures of the sheep in with the wool. Hope you had some relaxation tonight :)
Can't wait to follow the process! Nora is such a beautiful sheep!
Love all that crimp on Winston! I'm gearing up for a bit of fleece washing myself. Oh and nice job on the fleece shed. It looks immaculate!
I'm interested in this process. What causes a fleece to "yellow"?
I am no expert but the yellow is either old lanolin that has dried or a bacteria that grows in warm conditions on the fleece. Both are removed by a good scouring.
One of the many things I love about you: you go from sheep to sweater. You amaze me.
Can't wait to see your new bathroom. It's going to be lovely!
So much work! I think I'll stick to buying all the beautiful indie yarn out there. Sometimes I real like I am buying ALL the yarn.Your package arrived safe and sound yesterday and I'll post a proper thank you tomorrow -- when there will be plenty of time to post as winter has returned with a vengeance!
Doesn't it feel great to knock a few chores off the list?Nora may have been dirty, but she sure is cute!
What fun! Your wool shed looks great now!I am out of fleece and this makes me have a fleece-envy! lol
That sounds like quite a complicated process!
