Oxford 2021


Hand picking and drum carding this fleece that I purchased at the Monterey County Fair in 2018.
My washing job wasn’t great and some of the lanolin is still in parts of it. It’s been sunny while carding so that hasn’t been a problem. It slips nicely into the cards.

This is a nice medium length, medium hand fleece. Could make a good workhorse yarn for hats, mitts, socks, maybe even a cardigan. Not super consistent throughout, but the carded batts are very nice.

I think I will be dyeing the skeins once they are spun.


Have finished two samples. I think I like the 2-ply best.
Now spinning more singles. One bobbin finished. Starting in second.
