You start with a little bit of Wensleydale woolliness
Then you add a little dye and cook in the steamer. It’s really simple but I don’t like the smell of the dye and had to have the door open – so cold! Remove excess water with one of these.
Yes, I know it’s called a salad spinner but in my house it’s used as a wool spinner to rid the fleece of excess water and it works really well on small amounts. Much better than leaving it dripping, or damping with a towel as less likely to felt in the process. A small handle but it spins very quickly and forces the fleece against the walls allowing the water to drain away – look.
It looks so lovely now.
