I opened up a Wensleydale fleece that I had in my closet yesterday, and I decided to take photos of my washing method. I've posted a bit before about how I wash lock by lock, but this method is different (and easier). This is how I wash curly wool for corespinning, when I don't need to preserve individual locks but don't want to interfere with the curls. These platinum blonde locks will make a delightful yarn. I could have used a stronger detergent to get all the yellow out, but I wanted to keep this warm in color. First, a before and after shot.
After taking out the wool again and dumping the water outside again, I gave it one more rinse.
