Intro and Ongoing Projects

Hi everyone! My name is Carolyn, and I am head over heels into knitting, spinning and dyeing. I am glad this new group has been started. Currently, I am knitting a pair of butterfly wing socks from my hand dyed and hand spun roving. Also, I am in the middle of carding and spinning some good Georgia cotton. What is everyone else working on? Happy New Year to all!

Storing fleece

I wonder how you all store your precious fleece and keep it mouse and moth free? I have found that storing in old redundant chest freezers is ideal - if you have the space. Mine are in a large shed outside, First they are put in those open weave plastic sacks and labelled, then placed in the freezer cabinets, keeps them cool in summer and frost and pest free in winter. Another tip is that if you do find any moth larva activity in your wool after storage or leaving around I find a quick blast in the microwave oven, an old one , not your best kitchen model, works a treat and this also works to re energise any old wool where the lanolin has become hard, makes it easier to card or spin. Anyone else got any tips?
