Fleece prep.

This looks a bit ghastly but it is just a tub of sheep's fleece that I am soaking in water and some alum.  On Sunday I am off to a fun dye day and hope to change this mess into nice coloured fleece.  Once I have dyed the fleece I can then make some needle felted hearts.  The alum acts as a mordant and ensures that the fleece takes the dye.  Will look forward to showing the results.
