Wool being carded into roving

I made a trip to the Mendocino Wool Mill in Ukiah yesterday to drop off some fleeces from last week’s shearing. The mill was in operation and Sarah let me take photos. It was so exciting to see all the machinery at work and the different steps in the fabrication from raw wool to yarn.
