Denise: With the usual Saturday ‘turnaround’ work done, I had a quick look at J’s fleeces, and I have to say I’m pretty impressed. it was lovely to be outside on a lovely sunny afternoon with all the fleeces spread out on the lawn. All of the fleeces are a good size, clean and with very little waste, but about five or six are so good that it would be a waste to send them away for mill-spinning; they are especially fine and soft and long-stapled, and certainly good enough for spinning by hand. So that’s them sorted into two piles for now: one third for our own hand-spinning (with most of the higher sales prices retained by us!); two-thirds to go away for mill-spinning. Well done J!
