I may not have a fleece to wash but I do have one that needs carding. I came to the end of the batts I had made during last year's Tour.
I've got two half filled bobbins and could use a bit more to spin before I ply them. I've already got two skeins of it intended for socks and I need it all spun before I can dye them.
It's a very nice California Red fleece courtesy of Miss Trinidad.
It's one of the nicest fleeces I have ever washed. It was clean and bouncy but not exactly the softest-that's why it will be socks.
It was a chilly day, bright and breezy which is perfect for cranking the drum carder. I like a bit of wind to keep the dried bits out of my face. I got two nice batts out of it. One is in storage and the other has been pulled into nests. Now if it would just warm up again I'd pull the wheel out onto the deck and make a day of it.
