Who's Finian and why does he stink? Finian is that little Shetland in the photo. I bought his fleece last summer. I washed it with really hot water and Dawn using the top loader method. Then I dyed little batched of the fleece on the stove with various dye stuff. And guess what! You can still smell his stink. I don't know why.
The yarn samples above are from Finian's fleece dyed with marigold with alum as a mordant. I ran the locks through my drum carder just once. The staple length is so long that it barely worked to card it that way. I was trying to decide between a 2 ply and a 3 ply yarn. I'm going with the 3 ply and plan spin a whole skein now.
