I'm working on some singles for a sweater:
And culminating in a lovely merino/silk mix:
A couple weekends ago, we have the priviledge of watching some sheep get sheared. I rescued a fleece from decomposing in a farm yard (from a mix breed meat sheep with a nice coat) and have been playing with it.
Let me tell you, if you've never had the opportunity to dunk a large amount of not too terribly dirty looking raw fleece into a sink full of cold water and watch the previously clean water turn a very stunning muddy brown, you're missing out. I was seriously impressed by the hidden yuck. I don't yet have carders, but a cheap pair of dog slickers have been filling in until my birthday.
