my heart: it appears that I've won a whole unskirted icelandic sheep fleece in a raffle on ravelry.
Dear Husband just said: oh, that will make a nice cat bed! Before saying: it will be a good learning experience for all of us.
Any and all advice, links, You Tube videos you can offer me will be greatly appreciated.
I have never done any skirting/cleaning/carding before.
The fleece will be mostly white with some moorit parts. I could have had a black one (yes! There were choices!), but I figured I'll be able to see the less desirable "additives" like vegetable matter etc. much better on a white fleece.
My biggest question right now: don't Icelandics have guard hairs? How do I deal with them?
