opens to a delicious sheepish smell of unwashed wool!
I put it right in to wash-this is only an 8 oz package so it fits on the stove. It chases Bill out of the house but I like the smell!
I laid it out to dry in my sewing room under the fan to dry as it was raining outside!
The first two batts off the carder-such softness! (I am keeping the particulars of the fiber a secret until I have the project well under way-it will make sense later. ) I have a lot on my mind right now, the slow motions of working with the wool is very relaxing to me!
I finished the mitts I was knitting-all the ends sewn in and ready to wear! This one is a mystery wool-very soft so I think it was a lamb of a medium wool.
This is from some Merino I was gifted in the Spring.
