Two Pounds of Leicester Longwool
dirtywet in a colander
In a basket for all to admire! The wool is white. The yellow you see is old lanolin that didn't wash out. Not surprising since a: I have no real idea how to wash raw wool properly, b: this wool is from last year and should have been cleaned a long time ago, and c: I didn't want to strip it completely. But for the learning purposes of "Sheep to Shawl" its fine. Also, for sitting on my table and simply being a basket full of excellent sheepy love, its perfect.
