Wool fleece cleaned and carded

Tunis sheep's wool is so lusciously soft, plenty of lanolin.  I bought this wool from Red Rope Farm. They focus on natural grass feeding. That's pretty basic.

I carded it with my Louet drum carder.  Less time consuming than a hand carder.  I use the washing machine method , which can be found here, with unscented, plant-based detergent. Now, it is ready to be used as stuffing and for spinning yarn.
