Jacob Fleece Washing…


I washed some of the fleece today, as my new hand carders and spindle arrived in the post. It hasn’t come very clean, so I might try teasing the fibres more first, and maybe different detergent, as this had 3 washes and rinses in very hot water.


I also thought I’d try some spinning, which is going surprisingly well I think. The first batch is Corriedale Silver in Dark Purple.


This is the second batch in White, work in progress.

I will have to try and card some of the Jacob, then I can try and spin it… :-s
