I have three fleeces, three luscious fleeces

Bought at a festival last night

A Jacob, a Corriedale, and a Rambouillet-cross

I’ve got my work cut out for me, all right.

Honestly, that’s as much of my knitting and spinning future as I can foresee. I have three fleeces sitting in my living room. I need to skirt, sort and clean them so I can get them out of my living room.

This is not crafty ambition. This is physical necessity.

Thankfully today is a sunny day, perfect weather for fleece sorting out on the lawn.

I’m starting with the Jacob first. It’s the cleanest.


  1. I’ve never bought a fleece, because I have nothing like enough space to skirt and wash it myself. However, I just learned that you can buy one and send it to a mill for processing (d’oh!) and get lovely clean roving back! I may be in trouble at my next festival.

    • Indeed you can. I’ve never done so but I’ve heard good things about the experience. I sort of enjoy processing it myself. Although I may change my mind sometime in the middle. This is A LOT of wool.

    • That’s right, I’ve got to try to remember to take photos. I get so absorbed in just getting it done. So much wool.
