This past week we were planning on taking our wool to a place where it is processed. That includes washing, and carding wich is making it into roving, batting or a cloud. As we were weighing and getting everything ready to take, I started doing some calculations. With gas for a four hour trip, processing costs, and shipping it back to us it was going to be well over $200. Well I'm a pretty frugal person when it comes to something I can do myself. The other farmgals and I all agreed that the money would be better spent on things we want for the barn. So I have set myself a goal to get all the wool washed in the next two weeks.
