As a spinner and weaver I know I can easily get hold of sheep's wool for very, VERY little money. I know farmers willing to give good spinning fleece away for free here in Wales, land of sheep
Maybe this has been discussed here before?? Has anyone experimented with sheep's fleece instead of goose down? Is it a question of insulative quality? I can't imagine sheep's wool is much behind down somehow... It's lightweight, insulative etc... My partner recently bought a sheep's wool duvet and it is WONDERFUL!! Very warm but never makes either of us sweat.
I know it would take some hard work cleaning and processing raw fleece into useful carded bats but hell, if it means I can make my own UQ and TQ for a few pounds, I'm in!! And I'm used to processing fleece so it's not out of my way
Any thoughts?? Anyone tried it before?
