21  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / fleece help on: January 10, 2007 03:17:47 PM
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  Tongue

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 Smiley
