Fleece

I just bought my very first fleece!!!

We went to the fair and one of the sheep owners was selling the fleece that had been just sheared off of the sheep that you see in the photo.  I was so excited!!  My husband encouraged me to get it so that I can play around with it – I guess it needs to be cleaned, carded and spun into yarn.  I can’t wait to get started!

  1. Have fun with this process!

  2. EXCITING!
    I got given some fleece – Ive soaked it (I’m not one for spinning in the grease) I’ve started teasing it out with a dog comb but ended up putting it aside to do stitching and I found some navy (dyed and carded) that I need to finish spinning! Too many crafting ideas – too little time
    Good Luck and enjoy!
