you can clean and dye your wool before spinning, it will be ready to use afther that.
great you picked up the old craft.
I gave my "old" spinning wheel to an older man in our village who keeps busy spinning and weaving. It's been put to good use now :)

Kaska: nice of you!
I love old crafts and spinning is relaxing (if all is going like it should )
I will clean first a part of the wool, it is mixed colours from a partilolour sheep. So the dark parts can't get dyed.

gtc126: the spinning is going much better now. Soon I will post a picture of better spun wool.
