Guys, remember this?
My first fleece, purchased from the CT Sheep and Wool festival back in April. I was going to process it myself, but soon realized that I was in way over my head. So, back before Christmas, I shipped the whole shebang to the Still River Mill to be washed and carded. Lookee what came in the mail:
And this is what’s inside:
Each box has 3 bags full of clean, fluffy rovings:
That spin up quickly and easily:
It was a little over 7 lbs when I sent it, and I got back a skosh over 5 lbs. I cannot tell you how glad I am that I didn’t try to wash out the 2 lbs of wool grease and other shit that was in there. But, FWIW, I’m still in way over my head.
