It was love at first sight! You bought a fleece–and now what do you do with it? It depends! We will prepare a fine, medium and long wool fleece. We will card and comb all three types of fleece and spin them woolen and worsted and then ply. You will have enough fleece to knit samples with your yarn, so we can discover the perfect combination of preparation and spinning for your project.
