The only time I clean the bathroom…

…Is when I wash fleece.
I have bag loads of raw fleece in the shed. I haven’t really been washing much because its cold and rainy and I have nowhere to dry the stuff. But recently I have been throwing caution to the wind, because for the projects I want to work on, I just need more wool! And I want to use wool I have processed myself because I think that is better.
Today I washed some blue texel. Its a beauty of a fleece, so many different colours – shades of grey and brown. I washed it in the bath and bathroom sink, and made a horrible smelly mess which forced me to clean the bathroom (it needed it before I washed the fleece).
It felt like I was making blue texel soup!
The fleece is now drying in our spare room. Hopefully the cats won’t eat it. They were far too interested!
When its dry I shall card it and make something, I don’t know what yet, but I’m sure it will be something unexpected.
Like this fellow, guarding a box of cleaned and carded black shetland in my studio!
