My journey into the world of weaving

Washing the fleece

Leave a comment

We did get instruction at the Fair on how to do this but I thought I would google this as well. Oh my! There are many different approaches – every person seemed to have a different method! One thing is for sure, don’t agitate! don’t let the water run on the fleece!

I have done two bunches – they are air-drying upstairs. They don’t seem to have felted! and the really sheepy smell is gone.

I think I have done maybe a fourth or a third of the fleece.
