Grassy Fun

Just a peek at some wool that I got in a swap. I washed it the other day and boy is it soft. Sadly, there is a ton of VM in it. When I say a ton I mean lots... grass... all over the place. When I pick it up it falls out. When I set it down, it falls out. When I look at it... IT FALLS OUT.

So very disappointing. However, I'm going to break out the handcards in hopes to salvage the wool to spin. It felt fairly soft even with all the grass which pleases me since its my first go at Shetland. I guess we will just have to see what happens.
