Seeking Advice on Wool Processing
This weekend is the Great Lakes Fiber Feast down in Wooster, Ohio. Its only 30 minutes south from my house so I am going to venture down to check it out and gather ideas and inspiration for the MANY BAGS OF WOOL I AM COLLECTIING!!!
I know there will be some wool processors there but since I have never done anything with my wool I was wondering, "What should I have done with my wool?"
For those of you who do process your wool, could you give some advice to a green horn like myself as to what would be the most logical, practical choice to be done with my wool?
I was thinking of roving because I notice when I am reading, many of you do this.
I was also thinking about some batting but I am not sure.
And how much wool might I take to get processed? Like if I do roving?
I would like to take some of the Cotswold, the 2 bags pictured below weighed in just under 12#.
Long weekend coming up......beautiful weather and I will be planting the garden!!
