Sweet!

I’ve recieved the free fleece from the local farm…I’m buried in sheepy goodness!

First – the black (two sheep fleeces I’m told)

As it came…

Messy, huh?

But it cleans up nice!

I’m only half way through it…

A little I combed with my wool combs…

And then, there’s the white…

As I recieved it…

I soaked it in cold water…

Washed it in hot, hot water (boiling mixed with a little hot tap) once or twice. I’m finding smaller amounts per wash with a lot of love (teasing apart the tip and picking through) is the best bet with this but it’s worth it in the end!

  1. Wow! Both fleeces clean up and card into beauty! They look very soft too. I love the black/gray one best. Great job!

  2. It is amazing how they cleaned up. I was definitely pleasantly surprised!! I like the black/gray the best too. I’m still working on combing them and have a bit of the black to wash yet. It’s waiting in a bin on the front porch for my next big burst of energy, lol.
