First day of LeTour de Fleece
The first day of the TDF resulted in a pretty cloud! There's two balls of pre-drafted cheviot, 28 and 32 grams, a third ball just started, and a strip of roving that supposed to be 1/16th of the giant batt. We'll see what the total weight turns out to be. Maybe this is contest material? "Guess the weight of the batt." I'd have to have readers and a prize first!
The fiber has a fair amount of VM, though opinions probably vary based on experience and perfectionist tendencies. I was able to shake or pick out much of what didn't fall out while drafting, though I'm sure some migrated back or never left in the first place.
