So now to spin. A friend has Dorset sheep with lovely coats. She asked if I'd like the wool and since I had the time (who I'm I kidding) thought it would be a fun thing to do. Wash, comb, card and spin some wool... Well at least some of the washing is complete... the wonder of the Internet, enabling me to watch a video teaching me how to cleanse the fleece while I was washing it. Mind you I have done this before on a teeny tiny scale. When in college my Primitive Weaving course began with the professor handing each of us a handful of unwashed fleece..from which we were expected to create a finished product, all using primitive tools.. even had to make our own spindles and loom. Loved the project back then, but I can see that this is going to be a lot to do...why now that I look at this beautiful white wool ...I'm realizing I'm going to have a TON of yarn!!!
