Hello everyone I hope that you have enjoyed your Easter weekend.
I don't know about you, but it rained and rained!
While the young lambs have been battling the weather
I have been busy sorting out my fleeces.
I finished carding my Clun Forest fleece (bottom left),
started to card my Zwarbles fleece (top left),
washed some brown alpaca today (top right) and
half way through spinning my Jacobs wool (bottom right).
I have hired the drum carder from the Lincolnshire Guild and
this has made life so much easy.
I am happy to be able to begin making things from my own prepared wool.
Also I look forward to flowers this year. I have already made a delightful
soft yellow dye from the dead heads of my daffodils.
