|The Romney lamb's fleece purchased at MDSW on Sunday. I couldn't resist processing a sample.|
Soaked it in hot, hot water. I set a timer for twenty minutes and didn't touch it.
I soaked it in a second tub of hot, hot water with some blue Dawn dishwashing liquid. Again I set the timer for twenty minutes and left it alone. I repeated this step another time.
Augie is guarding the 11grams of flicked Romney locks and black nylon.
After two passes through the drum carder this is a 13 gram batt of 75% Romney and 25% nylon.
This spun up beautifully. The three ply sample after washing is 16 wraps per inch with a 30 degree angle of twist. It was spun worsted on the Little Gem II at a ratio of 8.6:1. The singles will rest over night and be plied tomorrow.
