Simple Task, Simple Tools

This morning's task is to prepare and spin 20g of Corriedale fleece for my spinning folio. The fleece is all nice and clean. It's been sitting on my table waiting for my attention since our last class. All I have to do is comb it and spin it up. I started after my second cup of coffee this morning. Here's my effort so far: . . . and yes that is a dog comb you see with the nice clean fluffy fleece. The wide tooth metal comb is just right for opening up the fleece and getting rid of any bits of stuff--such as grass seeds--that shouldn't be there. Once the fleece is combed it will be a joy to spin.
