Just a little washy washy...

Yesterday, after the new fleece arrived, I told myself I wasn't going to go all gung-ho and wash it all up. Today I thought, maybe I should wash just a little bit of it up, just to check it out of course.
Pretty little fleece bits
The Merino fleece has thin little locks, and the Cormo has big chunky ones. I was trying to maintain the lock structure, my technique is better than what it used to be, but still needs work. Especially on the Merino.

In between hot water dunks and soaks, I pulled out the fleece stash and resorted and cataloged and made up little fleece info cards to keep in a drawer near all my prep and spinning supplies. In hopes that reviewing what I already have on hand will inhibit impulse buying. And these last 2 fleeces were, ok, not impulse buys, but poor me buys. As in, "poor me, the last two days were really rough." Well, fondling fleece does make me feel better, especially wool with grease. Its cheaper than therapy and works for way longer.
