washed and combed

I got most of the fiber from merry meadows farm washed and dried. i took a few locks and just combed them out with a flicker brush

staple lenght is between 4.5 and 5 inches, fiber is sooo soft, no scratch effect at all against the skin.

even after washing and brushing the hairs still have a lot of crimp in them, this fiber should spin up into a springy yarn, great for weaving shawls,scarfs and knitted socks.
I love it!! got to get some more!!
I can't wait for the long winter nights now, i'll be spinning, carding, weaving like crazy!!!
I used to be very fond of bright colors (and still am) but now i'm really getting in

to natural colored wool.
