With perfect drying weather here, it was time to wash the samples of Border Leicester that I will spin for a guild project. I use mesh bags to control the fleece while washing. Because there was such a small amount, I washed and rinsed it in my kitchen sink. The same bags work in my washer when I have lots to process.
It was a perfect day to spread it out on racks in the sun.
That is another of my favorite spindles. It is a Forrester Safari. It was a perfect choice for sampling the carded fiber. I have this posted with a bit more detail on my blog: smatterings.
