I added some photos to Instagram showing what it's like to prepare a sheep fleece for felting.
The bag on the left is made from Jacob wool. The bag on top right is made with Shetland wool; the bag lower right is made from border Leicester. I use the same amount of wool and the same form for each bag. All three types of wool are medium-to-coarse in texture. I particularly like Jacob because it felts down relatively hard and tight. Bags were shrunk down more and embellishments and simple button closures were added.
