This isn’t the S’E2S’E project I’d planned on doing today. I had a 4-ounce bag of Clun Forest raw wool I was going to wash and dye. I dropped it into the wash water… noticed it seemed to have poop pellets in it. Possibly a lot of poop pellets. Then I noticed the locks were extremely short. I thought of picking all that poop out of that wool, and then fussing with the little locks that I would barely be able to hold between my fingertips as I tried to flick them. Then I thought of how I was not going to enjoy one moment of this project. Then I double-checked the price on the bag, not that it matters, and it was four dollars. I thought, I could just dump this out on the ground and forget about it and the lousy four dollars I spent on it. And I did!
I took out another little satchel of S’E2S’E, also sold to me aw raw wool, but in much, much better condition. That is what you see here; it is Lincoln Longwool – LONGwool, I emphasize. I am going to enjoy this one. Looks like mohair, doesn’t it?
