O.K. may be if I do thus a little at time.

1) Shetland fleeces are small, keep that in mind when picking a project.In saying that,I think it is a find fleece if your wanting to exprenice that whole DIY fleece prep.
better to deal with just a few pounds of farm smell, then lets say 10 POUNDS OF FARM STINK.Don't ask me how I know, I live in denile.

2) Some,not all shetlands, sport a double coat.That would be long hairy bits as well as shorter downey bits.This can be handled in a few ways. To get out the the long hairy bits involes combing out the fiber on wool combs. Slow. Plane b) send that puppy off to a wool mill and let them get out the hairy bits.I use the closest wool mill to me.Lindenof Wool Mills, and I would not be surprised if farmers of said fleece used the same mill.

If you don't want to be bothered with the hairy bits,leave them in, Your knitted product will make great FELT. Just cause their small does'nt make them easy.


P.S. ihope this works and gets to you
