Elegantly Wasted…

The quest to put more and more fibre through my carder is continuing.  I began to worry that I might not have enough fibre to keep me going.   (I ignored the boxes of stashed away stuff.  Variety is what I was after…)  In need of an instant fix I ordered a 500g mixed waste bag from World of Wool http://www.worldofwool.co.uk/products/36/special_offers.htm

A very well stuffed bag arrived a couple of days later – it must have had the air well and truly squished out of it as once I undid the knot at the top it pretty much tripled in size.  Here’s what I got:

Mostly merino (I think!) – there’s over 100g of the green merino in the bottom right of the photo, but also some humbug looking something (shetland or BFL) shown on the bottom left.  Should keep me carding for a while?
