Wool from my sheep
« on: June 20, 2008, 08:28:27 pm »
I will be shearing my five Ryelands by the end of the month. I thought I really should do something with the wool. I have been to the Cheshire show this week and spoke to some women from a Spinners Guild so now I am going to give it a go!  :-\ I have been told how to wash the fleece ready for spinning but forgot to ask at what stage I dye it.  ::) Can anyone give me advice.  ???

Depending which dyes you want to use you can dye before or after washing! I wash and dye lots and lots of wool get in touch if you need more help :)
