Have you ever had a terrifying mess like this at the side edge of your knitting?
A mess like this occurs when stitches come loose at the edge and run out.

Usually held the 1st weekend in May, check website for exact dates.
Every year we volunteer at the Sheep Shearing at the Staten Island Zoo. Some members get fleece... which of course needs to be cleaned.
A few Pointers:
As per suggestion in our "Skirting" post.... we recommend that you send your fleece to a professional service to get it cleaned.
But if you feel the need to do it yourself, do some research before you start so you don't end up with a felted mess!
Search for "how to clean a fleece"
here's a couple good tutorials:
