So there’s this fleece I am thinking about. It’s Merino.
On one hand, I don’t like spinning Merino as a rule, though I WILL and I DO and sometimes I do actually like it. But I think I would hate myself if I had a whole Merino fleece and had to wash it and process it and spin it.
OTOH it is a charcoal grey–almost black–and I have a serious weakness for dark fleeces. It really is a lovely fleece.
OTOOH, it is Merino. I think of Merino as the clean-cut boy I should like but don’t really, because while he’s nice and all, he doesn’t really inspire passion like that bad boy longwool down by the docks.
OTOOOH, I am still thinking about it even after deciding not to get it.
OTOOOOH, I am already committed to buying a cream-colored Cotswold fleece with which I am madly in love.
Thoughts? Suggestions? What would you say is a reasonable price/lb for a dark Merino fleece, anyway?
Not that I’m really considering it. Not at all.
I need to make a decision by tomorrow afternoon. Ish.
