Sorting Through a Fleece

I have got to get caught up on all of the fleeces around here so decided to pick through one today. I set it out on a long table & tear it up into small pieces that I sort by texture & length. As I tear, I also manage to shake out some of the dirt as well as pieces of hay & other non-wool stuff. An awful lot of fleece becomes a nice crate of good wool that I will wash up to spin into yarn.

As I worked the dogs & one of the donkeys visited but mostly minded their own business. Bart, our spoiled sheep, insisted on shoving up under the table where it appears he was scratching his back.
