This morning, I decided to use my snow day (at 15 degrees F. and blowing snow - no way was I going outside!) to check out the RDF (Really Dirty Fleece!) that I've been cleaning bit by bit.
I have six bags of cleaned and carded fleece. Each section is a different color.
Mostly gray - black, dark black/brown, dark gray, medium gray and light gray!
The last section of cleaned and carded wool is a nice colored gray but I don't think I'm going to be able to use it with the other colors. It is just the dirtiest section . . .
that what looks like heathered gray is really - VM. Vegetable matter.
It got to the point today when I looked over what I was cleaning and I just bundled up that section and tossed it. The remaining sections - dark brown, black and dark gray - were relatively clean so I washed them up and I'll get a final carding session in later this week. I don't really know what I'm going to get yarn-wise but I'm hoping to get something good enough for hats and mittens.
