It must have been my sixth sense that had me write about the wonderful pin-drafted rovings that Shari of Morro Fleece Works provides, because I received a huge box of processed rovings from her yesterday. 12+ pounds worth. 3 fleeces.
Eh-hem. I have to admit that I completely lost track of one of the fleeces that I had sent her. That makes 6 fleeces that I had sent to her for processing. There are still 3 more to come back to me. I think. Are you sure that they don’t multiply in the garage when you aren’t looking?
The rovings are gorgeous, including a Lincoln x Corridale that I tried to process myself. I couldn’t get all the grease out. The small sample that I tried to re-scour ended up badly felted, but still greasy. Shari performed a miracle with these. The rovings feel like clouds of fairy fluff. I can’t wait to play with it. I almost want to jump in and roll around in it, except I don’t want to ruin all that beautiful, fluffy stuff.
Sonja and I are going to Dixon Lamb Town this weekend. I pledge to not buy any more fleeces. Cross my heart. I swear. (I might have my toes crossed on this one.)
