A day for washing fleece

Today is going to be a scorcher, and I have a fleece to wash, so I have decided to hobble around and wash as much of it as I can. It is a very light brown fleece, perfect for over dyeing in my opinion, but unfortunately, very dirty!

The fleece is greasy, and as soon as I put it in water, the water turned brown. Going to be interesting to see the finished color. I still have a few fleeces I'm waiting to pick up, but as I can't drive very far at the moment I'll have to wait.

I also have a gorgeous alpaca fleece that needs a clean, but it does seem to be in great condition, just a little dusty.

The alpaca is in the basket, the wool is being soaked.
