Latest addition to the pile of fleeces waiting to be spun (alright, it's not a pile. There's only three now in total!)

These are Herdwick fleeces - an adult on the left and a lamb on the right, donated by a friend of mine who raises them for meat. I'm interested in how they are going to spin up; I know they won't be much use for clothing, although the lamb's fleece is surprisingly soft, but might be good for felting or weaving. The colours are lovely, so varied from cream through grey and brown to almost black.

And we enjoyed a rather nice lamb tikka masala last night, from the same source!

Interesting. Cleaning fleeces is yuck though.
