Who says that a cold water wash won't help wash raw fleece? This is some of the Jacob's fleece that I bought last weekend. In case you can't make it out, the fleece is in the mesh bag and that black water is what remained after I let the wool soak for about six hours in just plain cold tap water. The waste water has gone to the garden and the wool is getting its final rinse. This is the first time I have tried cold water and I'm pleased. (I did wash the wool in the usual hot water method after the cold water but it took at least one fewer soak in hot water and dish soap.)
Who says that Jake isn't cute? Jake is cute.
