She's a 3 pound fleece that I picked up last year at the MDSW.
I love it when Shepard's put these personal notes in the bag with the fleece. Who can resist a fleece with a face?
I always wash in March for the Tour de Fleece and since it's almost not March I needed to play catch up.
SInce Trini is a very clean girl she went into the kitchen sink. I know it sounds yucky but I nuclear bomb the sink with cleaners as soon as I am finished. I actually don't really think it's any worse than putting a dead chicken in it anyway.
While that fleece was soaking I got out the bag of fiber I washed last spring and gave it a carding with the carder.
I had spun up a sample during the last TdF and found her to not be on the terribly soft side so I am going to try to spin her for socks this July. There is nothing better than a thick pair of handspun socks over top of your regular wool socks when the polar vortex has come calling.
I got two batts done before it was time to do some wood chores.
The washed fleece dried nicely in the bright March sun. March is the best month for washing. I wish I had remembered that sooner.
