Wensleydale Batts

The first wool batts from this year's fleece.  These are from a half bred sheep that I sold last Autumn to a neighbour.   I now have the whole fleece and as with my other half bred sheep it is a large fleece.  I have washed  and then kettle dyed some of the fleece using Gaywool dye.  This has produced a lovely denim coloured wool which I have blended with Angelina to make a lovely fibre ready for spinning or felting.  There is still a little veggie matter in the fiber although it has been through the drum carder 3 times to blend the dyes lots thoroughly.  I have put it up on my Etsy web site.
