    I am looking for the following fleeces, eithe full or partial:

    dark Finn

    shetland, no specific color, spotted okay

    BFL,, any color---light grey is nice; hold a color well

    Merino

    Coopsworth

    I need them washed already. I have the carder and the rest, just have o place to wash. I am nearly spun out of my Merino now and would need something soon.....

    I've got a couple Shetland - some washed, some not. Really don't need them all ... really .... Let me check what is washed, what the weight is and color and get back to you.

    Merino is a PITA to wash/process - got a secret to it?

    I have a couple leceister longwool in (darker) grey that I could probably let go of part of one.

    The best secret to Merino processing is Henry's Attic! As I do several festivals a year, i buy in bulk from HA (the huge 50 lb bump) of Merino....it is perfect and beautiful and spins so well........That is what you see in my pics...

    Yes, Merino is a pain to process but I have done it, just takes time and patience.

    Yes, let me now about the Shetland, color, weight and price per lb.
    Thanks, Carly

    I forgot about the Shetland last night. Got home to a big box of gorgeous, alpaca fleeces. I barely had time to think about cooking supper before I dug into that!
