A.K.A. You need to have something to spin for Tour de Fleece.
I spent, and am still spending, my days this week washing wool.
Ugh, my basement doesn't really look like this. Where it looks muddy (or bloody), it's really just water. The kids have had a lot of fun in this corner doing picture shoots in their get-ups from Silent Hill and I've been sworn not to scrub this corner until they are done.
'Ava' on the left in her first scoure, and merino/targhee sausages on their final rinse.
Bitsy Knits. What's on the spindle and in my hand is only one ounce.
Wool skirted and washed this week (post wash weight):
15.6 ounces merino/targhee
2 pounds 11 ounces of Ava.
I am so glad I moved my wool washing to the basement. I might actually be able to wash all the fleece I own now.
