Fricke Ready, Willing and Able
Gracie – Raw CVM-Romney
#1 On my Tour To-Be-Spun list. This will be a 2-ply spun to match last year’s Gracie…that I’m using to knit Tom’s sweater. High priority for this years Tour!
Tower of Raw Fleece
Here we have 3 raw fleeces…all Gulf Coast…all from our girls. From the top down:
Holly’s 2009 Lamb Fleece
Holly’s 2010 Fleece
Sally’s 2010 Fleece
New Zealand Merino – about 12 oz
There. That’s that. After I finish Gracie, I’ll move on to Gulf Coast, and then Merino. I have more 1 more Gulf Coast ewe, 2 GCNI (colored Gulf Coast) fleeces, a couple real nice Border Leicester fleeces, a couple pounds of Welsh ewe, and a few pounds of 4 oz hunks of a wide assortment of raw fleeces. But, the Tour de Fleece starts – and ends – with the Tour de France. So…the goals for this month have been set.
Cha cha cha.
Now, if it would just stop raining, I might be able to get some of this fleece scoured – and DRIED!
