Check this out! Look at the difference in this wool! Washed lock by lock is SOOOOO worth it for this wool.
I'd say I've washed about 1- 1.5 pounds already. I've got to take a break though, as we are off to visit the in-laws for the weekend. But I can't wait to get back to wash more. Over all I've spent at least 3 hours washing so far. But it's turning out to be a zen experience. Even with the little ones 'helping'.
This fleece is going to be so wonderful as a warp yarn, or a super fine lace weight, and I'm almost afraid of carding it! Straight from the lock for most of this!
Oh! And this is what 6 lbs of BFL fleece looks like, in case you were curious.
