Up to My Elbows in Wool





I have spent the last two days sorting and skirting the natural colored fleeces.

Mike has made the job much easier by building me a new skirting table.



As you can see it does a great job of letting second cuts and debris fall through.
You can also see that sorting and skirting the fleeces is a messy job.

The natural colored fleeces are done! I put the individual, picked fleeces in plastic bags for short term storage. I will start washing them tonight.

I can't tell you how much easier this job was with the new skirting table, I love it!

If you want to know more about skirting-

  4. Do you spin? I have a wheel but have yet to learn. Wish one of the spinning bloggers lived nearby.
