I was talking to someone that said they just crochets rugs from roving and I thought that sounded really fun. However, what I have right now is actually an Icelandic fleece, not roving, and I haven't crocheted anything for years. Can anyone give me some ideas how to get started? The fleece doesn't seem very oily with lanolin. How much preparation would it need to be ready to crochet? I think its pretty clean. She said that she just gets a really big crochet hook and uses the roving, can I just start in with the raw fleece pulling some out and going at it? She also said that she washed her rugs to lightly felt them after crocheting, I think I can manage that, I've started playing with felting knitted garments to use the felted wool for other projects. Anyone have an idea how large a rug one fleece would make? I can probably get more from some of my friends for reasonable prices if working with this one is fun. (It was a gift to me and I wanted to do something with it!) Thanks for any ideas or help you all have!
