It was a perfect day to wash fleece on Saturday. The sun was shiny and the wind was crisp.
This was my second time scouring fleece.
I have to do something before I spin it. I test spinned a bit and found out that the fiber is too short and too fine. It is difficult to hand-card this fiber. It is so fine that teeth of my handcarder don't catch it very well. And it is difficult to spin because it is too short.
I've already washed and spinned some Gotland. I bought them at the same time. And I had no troubles like these with the former fiber.
Now I have some plans. Forget about handcarding and just use flick carder or something, mix with other longer fiber, or forget about spinning and just felt it.
