Fleece Washing

I decided it was time I washed Hermionie's fleece, well at least start on it. I'd forgotten how big it is! Her mum was a Corriedale and Dad was a Kerry Hill x Oxford Down, so her fleece is something special.
Here is half the fleece drying in the fleece store
a close up of some of the staples, note the length and crimp
and a slightly closer look at the staple.
Don't think I will have to card this fleece, just comb out the locks and they will be ready to spin.
