Today has been and enjoyable day as I have been trying out a new product to me. It is a scouring liquid that you add to fleece to remove the excess lanolin. So far it is doing what it says on the packaging and I have soft hands to boot. Always a bonus.
Like everyone starting out in felting you buy in your wool and get to grips with the process, but I started to get bored with that and decided to go one step further and join the people that clean and dye their own fleeces.
So far I have played with Jacob,Dorset and Lincolnshire Longwool.
I am awaiting a parcel in the post and I am getting very excited about that.
So watch this space to find out what it is!
