This video shows how one can use up fleeces to make rugs even if you are not a spinner. I think the results look useful and comfy,  and I will certainly be asking for our neighbour's sheep fleeces next year to have a go. So far we only use them for composting. Has anyone else had a go with this?

Hi Mandy,

Thank you so much for posting this, I am inundated with offers of fleeces, and new to spinning, so I am delighted with a quick way to use them. Can't wait for winter to give this a try.

Regards

Lesley

Please post pics of your process and progress. I would love to see what you make. I would like to get my hands on some fleece and have a go!
