Highlander sheep part two


you can find part one here

Once dry I gave the fleece a final quick pick over and started loading it onto the combs, lock by lock to keep the fibres running in the same direction.

like Romney, these locks are a good 7inch plus in length and I could have done with finding my mister as static was a little problem.

These nests are around 5gm each and I've settled on a test spin, two ply, around 30 gm.

As you can see, I sit sideways on to my e spinner and draft across in front of me.

Back with part three tomorrow x

It's such a brilliant white all the way down to the tips!
