One of the first fleeces I ever washed was an expensive Cormo that I picked at the MDSW. I was a complete newbie at the time and had no idea that I was getting in way over my head. Greasy Cormo is hard to wash and I had 9 whole pounds of it.
That was way back in 2010 and I have finally spun the last of it. I've been spinning it in one way or another for 7 years.
These are the last of the pretty singles spun from all the pretty locks I dyed with egg dye.
It was an Easter tradition for many years. 9 pounds is a lot of locks.
I had to hand card the locks as I spun because you can't put fragile Cormo locks in a drum carder.
Now I have a bunch of skeins that look just like this in the handspun bin. Not as many as you would think though. I'll have to go figure out what happened to the rest of the 9 pounds. I must have done something with it.
