Fermenting Fleece

Yes I am fermenting a sheep's fleece
Lambert's fleece has been put into a big dustbin and is soaking in rainwater, this method is suppose to clean the fleece, it will stay in there for two weeks then be rinsed off and dried ready for spinning,
Once his fleece comes out another will go into the same water and so on until I have all four sheep fleeces done.
There is more details on this method here Fermenting Fleece
