Wild.

Vital parts of working with raw wool, to me, is how the material looks, feels, smells, its wildness and freedom, the depth of colours in the un-dyed material..

Did you know that every fleece, every fleece from a different herd, smells differently? Grinning..Some of my students will gladly inform you that I asked them to lick their fingers after touching raw wool to prove that every fleece also tastes differently.

(Raw wool is wool in its natural condition; not refined. Because of this particular felting process the wool is cleaned from its grease, but will still look as only sheared.)
