In the upper photo you have .4 oz. of what I believe is Romney wool, prepared by me in my old, got to get it done mode. That means split the fleece in 4 parts and put them in net bags and dunk them in hot soapy water in the washer, then spin that out and repeat til clean, then rinse using the same method. No agitation! Just get it done!
The first thing I did was load the Romney on the comb.
(I will be taking all the waste and running it thru the drum carder to glean what I can for a non spinning project.)
So I think my new slow method of fleece prep will pay off !
I hope you are all being blessed with thankful thoughts on this Good Friday, I know I am.
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
