Spudnick's Fleece is finally carded

I finally finished carding Spudnick's fleece today. It is going to be a long time before I get it all spun! Here are some pictures. This is about 4 times as much as I had the first time around. Good thing I found the rest of the fleece before I gave up on my sweater and made it into something else!

As you can see, there are several shades. I'll be spinning each shade by itself, to keep the colors from blending any further.

To give an idea of the size of the batts here's one with my hand.

I love all the shades of gray!

Very beautiful. Hmmmm..maybe its time I learned how to spin. I still have the download you sent me about handspinning.

There are lots of great hand spinning web sites now, with video. I wish you could feel the yarn this fleece spins up into. It's got this incredible feel!

That is an awfully nice picture of your wedding ring.

Too funny! I hadn't realized that the dark wool may not show up so well. I was trying to give size perspective. Guess next time I'd better do that with a lighter color batt.
