In the last couple of days I've washed some Shetland and I'm just starting to prep it (this isn't the new stuff, that hasn't arrived yet)
and I've had a hunt through my fleece looking for any I can get rid of and came across this.
washed maybe 3 years ago, compacted at the bottom of my large fibre bag and a mix of two, possibly three unknown breeds. It was halfway to the bin but I thought I'd give it a shot just in case.
Actually its not too bad, I'll probably get 2/3 skeins from it and chuck out the worst bits. Definitely feels like a down breed in there somewhere.
So, these are the skeins waiting for a dunk at the moment.
Nice selection, even if I say so myself :-)
