I have again done what was not a great idea. I have bought far to many raw sheep fleeces from eBay. It always seems such a good idea, till the washing and carding.
I always promise myself that I will stick to buying ready prepared fibre, to cut down on all the work. But, unusual and fair priced fleeces just keep catching my eye on eBay.
So far I have added to my stash, two coloured Ryeland, a Jacob, a Ramboullait and a coloured White Faced Woodland. All good fleeces, with the Ramboullait the star.
I am planning on making some warm sweater/tunics for the fast approaching colder months. One Ryeland fleece has been washed, flick cardedand spun; and halfway knitted into a top down sweater.
It will be warm if rather solid! But I like the colours.
