Fleece time

I can't believe how quickly this year is going by and already we are at the sheep shearing season.
Last year I had my first go at cleaning some fleeces. It was hard work but very rewarding. I did 7 last year, given to me by a good friend.
A few weeks ago  I asked her if I could have them this year, she asked how many I wanted, when I said all of them, she replied do you know I have 60 now! 
So me who never says no, spent last Monday from 10am til 6pm sorting through 60 beautiful fleeces

Jacobs, lonks, zwarble, woodland, texal and some mixed. My back was killing me but my hands were lovely and soft from the lanolin. Luckily there were lambs and a puppy to cuddle between the fleece sorting. 

Now what to do with it all??
