Picking Wool… Er, Mohair…

I had a lovely evening tonight…

I came home and finished reading a book. I enjoyed relaxing on the sofa for a little while.

Then, sweetie and I went and looked at his progress on the greenhouse. It’s coming along great – if it is a bit late in the season. He is using clear, corrugated polycarbonate panels that are rated for greenhouses. It will be very nice when he’s finished. So much better than the sheet plastic!

When I got home from work, I noticed that Ray was a lot skinnier than he had been. Then, I looked across the yard and saw a big pile of fleece laying on the ground. Darling sweetie had removed Ray’s fleece!

I picked up the fleeces and brought them to the porch to examine them and begin removing the vm (vegetable matter). I praised J on the great job that he did in cutting the fleece off Ray. He said that he didn’t cut it, it just pulled right off! He also thought it was terribly felted – but it isn’t.

I have a fairly sizable amount of fleece to go through and he still needs to get Frank’s coat off! The fleece is just lovely and I can’t wait to see how it washes up. Sweetie wants me to send it out for processing, because he thinks it’s a project that I’ll start and never finish… Yes, yes, I have second-sock syndrome, it’s true. But I am determined to process this mohair myself.

That reminds me… I need to get some hand carders!

This is going to be so much fun!!!
