From Ick to Love

I am LOVING the delightful process of taking a dirty, neglected fleece (or fleeces as the case is) and transforming it into squishy yarn.
Proper wool combs would be even more delightful, but even this simple dog comb is proving very useful.

I am starting with this matty-looking fleece, pulling a comb through both ends, and ending up with this fluffy stuff.
Then I spin it from the side/fold and get this squishy yarn.

See, here's a chatty video of me combing (awkwardly, for the camera) so you can see the transformation.
