A Fleece From Fletts

I had spotted a stone bench off cut on the side of the road Sue loaded it up and we took it out to Alan & Helen's. Alan is building a shed extension and in march holding a sharpening get together for forum members.

Just as we were leaving they mentioned a bag Helen had in her car, it was a whole black Merino fleece she had rescued from being tossed!!

Sue has sorted out and skirted a small part of it and begun combing in the grease and spinning it.

The last photo is after if being combed ready for spinning. Sue has spun three bobbins and plied those to make a a few hanks so far its looking like I will ahve knitted jumper by winter. I love the twisted colours coming through. Photos to come.
