|Jody teaching us how to skirt a sheep fleece (The table was Theresa's and for her alpaca fleeces.) The fleece is spread out on the table and the person skirting the fleece goes around pulling out the really dirty bits and large veggie matter before selling the fleece.|
I started the scouring process of the 3.3-pound fleece on Monday and finished the last two batches yesterday. Click on the link to read more about Jacob sheep.
|This is the sample and photo that came with the fleece. I cleaned the sample and it shows the beautiful variation of black to white. Compare the white in this photo to the one below.|
|The water in the yellow tub shows the water after the first soak.|
