Finn x Rideau Arcott. Washed locks, 4 ounces
4 ounces of locks washed in my smoke-free home.
The washing is done with the perspective of easy preparation for a handspinner.
Locks are distinct and are easy to open up. No debris or second cuts.
The staple is of medium length. The fibre is very soft and fluffy, of a translucent white similar to BFL.
It was purchased from La Ferme Guillemette in Charette, Quebec.
The fibre remains slightly dusty after washing. This will go away quickly as you prepare the fibre.
Easy to card or comb, spin as you wish.
Process prior to sale:
This product was obtained as an unwashed fleece. I paid the farmer $12 per pound of wool and did the pick up.
The fleece was then skirted, and locks were individually selected and put into a bag.
By loads of 2 pounds, the wool was washed. I did 6 scouring baths at 64 degrees celsius, 2 of them with wool soap.
After drying, the weight loss calculated is around 25%.
