My dining room floor appropriately used for sorting one sea sized luscious brown Shetland fleece. Here’s a black Shetland fleece being carded. It was easy to separate this Grey Shetland fleece into 8 different textures, colors and fineness for 8 different yarns. Hand-prepared Shetland roving is ready for final carding and spinning.
