I am getting my fiber lined up for this year's spinning marathon to echo the scheduling of the Tour de France. I am totally disinterested in sports but I do like the 'sport' of textile and this is a fun competition!
I have been collecting my rovings and I pulled out this fleece I bought last year and got it ready for washing.
It goes into the tub of hot, sudsy water....twice.
After two rinses, I have a very creamy soft pile of Florida Gulf Native fiber!
After I spin it out in the washer, I lay it out on the old sliding glass door screen to dry! The cats only knocked the screen down twice-not bad!
While I was waiting for the fleece to soak or rinse or dry, I dyed some more superwash roving.
It is in shades of grey to black. The 'race' begins on Saturday.
