    And of course you'll get that all cleaned up and washed and do something with it!

    Washing started!

    I'm going to do a fleece for a spun fleece trade with these two blankets.

    Teddy used to be black but he looks really grey now. Don't know if he's actually going grey (presumably he's 8 or 9 years old) or there is just that much dirt on him.

    Should add what that means.
    There's a FB group where you do a 50/50 trade with alpaca fiber. You mail them the fleece and the person will keep half and spin the other half & mail back.
    I did that last year, but this year, I want to trade a whole, washed Babydoll fleece, that the spinner keeps as payment and a washed alpaca blanket will be spun and mailed back to me.
