So I dragged all of the fleece I bought yesterday out of the back of my truck and weighed it.
I now own approximately 185 pounds of raw Romney fleece.
That's a LOT.
It'll lose quite a bit of weight once it's "skirted" (gross bits around the edges removed) and washed.
I experimented with skirting one fleece. I had read a bit about it, but once I had the fleece on the table, I realized that I needed to do a lot more reading on the subject. :P
I made some progress on this fleece, but I'm sure I have more to do. I got rained out, so I stuffed all the bags of fleece back under the tonneau cover of my truck and went inside to do more research.
I'll have to decide if I want to wash the fleece and keep it to spin, or wash some to sell, or sell some raw...
Lol, my mom asked why I bought so many. I told her that it's because it was a good deal, and because I'm an adventurous soul.
Perhaps a little too adventurous sometimes, but oh well. :P
