From Junkish Wool to Prime Roving
|Chris O in MA has a fleece of white English Angora wool that she does not think is primed enough. She shares her experience of playing with the fleece.|

|I left the whole mess to dry on the porch.|
| I kept picking it apart with my fingers as it dried.|
|A few days ago I decided to card some up on my Pat Green Big Batt |
carder. 72 ppi
|A beautiful roving emerges from the carder.|
