I had another go at this last night, only doing the Bowmont Braf fleece as it was quite small. I picked all the tips open and shook it all out, what a difference! So much nicer and cleaner this time. I'm letting it dry, then I'll give it another inspection before deciding if I'm done. Think it should be though.
mullerslanefarm Bowmont Braf was somethin I picked up at Woolfest 2008, a weekend ago, it's been bred in Wales, just over the border from me. The blurb from Woolfestsays: Bowmont Braf is a new 100% luxury Welsh wool, developed in the hills of Wales, producing a soft, lofty luxury wool not available anywhere else. It is suitable for felting, dyeing, spinning & knitting with a range of colours & patterns.
They had a couple of grab bags on the stall, so I thought I'd get a sample as it was very cheap, plus a small enough amount to easily handle. So far it's gorgeous, lovely and soft with nice crimpy bits. The website is here http://www.bowmontbraf.co.uk/
if you want a look.
mooshie from what I understand alpaca doesn't produce lanaolin, which is why it's so popular for people with allergies, which means that all you need to worry about is drit, rather than grease. Hope that's helpful. And also that it's correct!
