Second wash done, fleece dry but still looks bitty. Spend some time in the sun teasing the fibres apart and removing bits of straw and the dreaded BURRS! Hundreds of them! Card it then attempt to spin it. Not happy with it as coming out far more lumpy than my usual fine and slubby. Decide not to spin a full ball but to see what it looks, and more importantly, feels like when washed.
Here it is tied up ready to be washed.
You can still see debris in this drying photo.
last chance for it another day!!
