Merino Fiber: Ready to Card?

This fiber project is taking on a life of its own!  The whole batch is now dry.  I wish I could say it is now clean and dry BUT that is not really the case.

This has been washed twice...

My biggest concern is the amount of lanolin still in the fleece.  Currently I do not like the feel of the lanolin-rich fiber in my fingers.  I may need to readjust my likes and dislikes....

Last night as spinning group I felt some other merino fiber.  It also was quite lanolin-y.  Maybe I will just have to suck it up and move forward with preparing this fiber for spinning.

We shall see...!
