A couple of weeks back, I washed a bunch of Coopworth fleece. I can't get enough of this stuff - it's soooo pretty! I laid it all out on the front walk to have a good look at it, and make some decisions as to what I want to do with this fiber.
I wanted to get a closeup, so that I could show you how wonderful this fiber really is...
...which means that I had to walk on the fiber itself...
How wonderfully soft and wonderful and luscious and wonderful...
Now I know why I keep finding this...
Dixie, now I understand. I understand, completely.
You just have yourself a nice little nap, and please, don't disrupt the locks, OK? I spent a long time, sorting them out.
Sweet dog. She's my little pal. She's so prissy and dainty that she doesn't bother a thing.
Look how the fiber looks with a little bit of flash - it glistens.
I'm going to have so much fun with this stuff!!
I just want to roll in it!
Spinning is going nicely, too. I've started with the lightest shade, which is a very pale grey. I'm cutting off the badly yellowed tips, but there's still a lot of yellow in there, and I'd love to know a way to lighten or reduce the yellow shade. I'm going to look at the drugstore to see if there are any shampoos designed for this purpose. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd love to know what has worked for you.
By the way, maybe you've noticed a little difference in the way Blogger is posting photos? Maybe it slipped by you... but if you click on the picture, you can make it big, and if you click on it again you can make it full sized. I like this new development. Try it.
