Next up is a gorgeous Cormo fleece. This one almost 6lbs.
Some scoured locks. Those dirty ends flick right out leaving me with lovely white fiber.
Combing in progress. Same method as the last fleece.
The nests I have done so far. This should be enough for 2 singles to be plied into one skein.
The rest of the fleece needs a re-scour. There’s just a bit too much lanolin left in it. I can comb and probably spin it now in the summer heat without too many problems but come winter, it’s going to be a hassle. It looks like I’ll have a decent day or two next week to scour so I’ll get this bagged up over the weekend and ready to scour.
Note to self: Cormo has more lanolin than it appears and needs 2 soapy scours before rinsing.
