Working through the wool stash

Now that summer is winding down, it's time to get into the wool stash and begin washing, processing, dyeing and spinning. I'm beginning to see a problem around here with a room, basement and barn filled with wool and fiber bags.

The locks are beautiful, long and soft.

The lanolin in this wool is amazing. The water is literally beading off my hand as I worked and washed the wool

The water was the color of coffee as I began to wash it with a wool wash soap. It took about 4 rinses to begin running clear.

This is what 9 pounds of Lincoln wool looks like as it drys. Now to put some thoughts into some colorways and get busy!
