Landes de Britagne, Mouton de Britagne

The first of the fleece off the spinning wheel.  It is a very greasy wool and not that easy to spin as it is glued together.  I have given it a gentle wash while setting the spin and this has removed some lanolin but it will still knit up an old fashioned waterproof garment.  It is soft to handle and I think will knit really nicely.  I certainly will suggest that is used by those wishing to knit waterproof hats
