A Zero-Waste Wool Mill!

Monday, Monday.......

Can´t trust that day
Monday, Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way

Yes, it was Monday in every sense, but the day has come to a close and things got accomplished.  Not in the time that I wanted, but they got accomplished. 

The picker is nestled in and we finally started picking wool today.  It has been a long time coming.  The picker opens up the fibers and makes the carder's job easier.  Of course I had to run my own wool through it first, so that is what you see in the photo.  This is the collection box the wool is blown into after picking.  I just opened the door to snap a pic.  

This project has taken over 2 years to complete.  We took a lot of baby steps because nothing in this valley happens quickly.  There's a lot of growth happening and subsequently a lot of building.  Finding help was the hardest part, as I have mentioned before.  Doing this step-by-step has allowed me to get acquainted with each step of the process before adding the next one.  There's always a silver lining.
