From Raw to Washed

Raw English Leicester fleece.
Same fleece washed, it's very nice light and soft, can't really see on the pictures but it's got luster. I really like the colour it's a mix of silver and fan on the tips.

Next fleece is a raw white English Leicester.  As you can see there is a lot of lanolin and the tips are dirty.

Same fleece washed, after 2 baths and rinses it turns light and soft with a very nice luster, I still have to comb the tips to get what's left and I did care to not taking all the lanolin off , as I might dye locks or simply spin it as and washing the yarn later and it will be pure white.
