I wanted a couple of pounds of roving for my birthday, to try my hand at spinning. What I got instead was a huge bag of raw fleece of unknown origin. I have no experience with this, so it could be interesting
It is freezing and snowy outside here, so I have nowhere to sort and clean the fleece. What I did was take some of the cleaner fleece and wash it in the washer using instructions from the web.
This is after three washes:
My questions: are the yellow coloured parts no good? or is that a natural variation of fleece? What do I do about the parts that aren't coming clean? are they unusable? should I try carding it and washing again?
Thanks in advance
