Tour de Fleece Day 5: FLUFFY!

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

This, my friends, is 35yd/3.1oz of 4-ply super bulky pink fabulousness.  This was so bulky in spots that I had to manually wind it onto the bobbin, even though I was using my plying flyer with my Babe Production.  Perhaps I should have plied it on my big ol' plying spindle instead - it would have been quicker.  I love this yarn beyond reason, especially since a: I don't normally like pink and b: I haven't a clue what I'm going to do with it.  Perhaps a hat for the DD.  For now I'm just glorying in the FLUFFY!

I'm also glorying in fluffy of a less-completed nature.  Look what showed up on my porch today:

A box of Navaho/Jacob/Romney cross fleece from my favorite aunt's caramel colored lamb, "Ms Lemon."  Squee!

And more squee!  Four (FOUR!) llama fleeces from the same aunt's animals.  There are two greys, a tan, and a beige fleece, each in bags.

Sadly, I won't be able to start working on these until late next week - but they do give me something to look forward to on my comp day.

(And did I mention, FLUFFY! SQUEE!)

    Love the pink!

    What do you do to raw fleece to get it ready for dying and spinning?
