Mystery Wool

This is some of the wool that Sarah found by the side of the road in a very large sack.  Must have fallen off the back of a lorry (yes, really!!) :-


I carded a small amount and tried spinning it, and it looks lovely.  But it's really scratchy.

I think it's maybe some sort of goat (although there is definitely some sheeps wool in the bag too), but never having spun that before, I'm not sure.

I have since had the bright idea of pulling out the long rough hairs, as you would guard hairs with camel, and it worked.  So now just have to try another sample.

I hate to be beaten by this, so I'll have another go next week.
