First Stage


This is the fleece of a Jacob sheep. I have washed it in preparation to carding it ready for weaving. It is going to be interesting to see how much yarn can be made from a whole fleece. Unfortunately, the weather has turned wet so drying it is going to prove difficult.

This is the fleece after it has been carded.

Two of these layers now spun. I introduced a very small amount of blue un-spun yarn. Just playing.
Next stage is the weaving.
