What I said in answer to mab’s question the other day — it was about how to remove all the grass and seeds that accumulate in the wool of the goats — what I replied was utter rubbish, according to my wife.  I think I might have said that we card the wool with a wire brush before we spin it.  Well, we don’t.  Nope, that would completely ruin it.  To have this lovely wool and then destroy it’s … by … would, in fact, be a crime.  She told me the details, but I’ve forgotten and now she’s busy.  I’ll ask again later.  I do remember she said we comb the wool rather than card it and we pick out the shriveled blades of grass and seeds by hand.
