I finally sorted through my fleeces in the garage. One of them is thoroughly bad and is worthless for anything but mulch. It's an old suffolk cross that I was given 2 years ago. If you would like mulch for your garden, please let me know. It has lots of sheep manure attached to it.
I had 3 fleeces that were still excellent. One had been sorted last fall, and I took advantage of the GORGEOUS (!!) weather today to sort the other two. I called the mini-mill upon completion and asked when I could make an appointment to bring them over. It's only about 20 minutes away. Well, they suggested I bring them over today, which I did.
I've got about 2 kilos of wool. 1.5Kg is a grey dorset, and the other 1.5 Kg are two different white fleeces. One of the white fleeces is a dorset, the other is unknown. The two white fleeces will be mixed together. I'll get half of each back as a cloud for spinning, the other half will be processed into roving. I am looking forward to seeing the end results. I've seen the work this mill has done and I am generally impressed.
I'm pretty excited!! Can't wait to see the final result.
