After the Suint Bath
Not all the fleeces were put in the suint bath.Some worked better than others. The best were the Cotswold and the Blue Faced Leicester. With a proper wash in hot water, they should be clean as a whistle now. The Babydoll did very well in the suint bath too. The mohair, goat fibre, was not put in the suint bath since it does not have wool grease. There are comments for the individual photos. The suint bath took three weeks as it was the initial one this year. Once the fermentation liquid is established, subsequent fleeces only should take a few days. I have a few more I would like to try before emptying the stinky liquid in the garden. It makes excellent fertilizer!
