All of us have improved upper arm and chest muscles after carding fleece for over an hour this morning!
Some of us had done this before and brought our own carders and made very neat piles of yarn almost ready for spinning:
We did stop for a cup of tea and biscuits and some time in the museum before going back to work:
It was pretty tough to do though personally I found it very therapeutic (it may help get me through meetings) and am quite proud of my pile of wool:
Some of us are continuing at home and next time it's purifying the fleece into yarn and pulling out any sticky bits or (in Charlotte's words) sheep nastiness.
