about 2 years ago i bought me over facebook some locks
i love locks !
so, it was raw, it was dirty, it was stinky
i have never before seen such raw fleece
so it stored it in a dark spot in a chest in the garden shed
but this year i was ready, oh yes i played around wiht some REALLY dirty german fleeces, and i was so pleased with the clean wool, i thought,
ok, its time to look whats hiding in there
and i started washing and i wash shocked from the outcome, i was so close to throw it all away, the grease didnt wash out, no matter how hot and how long i soaked it …
but i went on, just thrown it all pot after pot into dishwasher water, rinsed with vinegar, and kicked it outside on the washingline
when it was dry, i started to flick caring all the dirt out … picked out some of the prettier locks
and even tested to spin it and knit it ..
i am SO GLAD i went on with it, it seems to be mohair
it is soft, it is cosy, it is just soooo lovely !
and i was able to save a few more locks, the just call out to be dolls hair
