More recently, I have been playing with fleece direct from the farm complete with farmyard smells and general detritus. My latest spin was Dorset horn purchased as washed fleece a couple of years ago, carded, spun then washed to remove any remaining dirt it now looks like this.

Polworth fleece from a fellow spinner made a similar transformation from raw fibre to a lovely soft 2 ply. seen here after washing.
seen here after knitting. I will update you with the contents in the wash bucket in a later post...now back to the house work!!
