East Friesian and Warhill

The 1st picture shows the lovely fine crimp of the Warhill, somehow visible in the unbelievable filth of this sample. Washed 1 handful at a time, the water resembled mud after 2 batches. Sometimes had to change after 1. And it had a ton of grass. 120 g ended up 60g. Felt real sorry for the sheep carrying around 100% of fleece weight in dirt. And yes, I bought these baggies sight unseen.

The East Friesian was just a black blob, unsuited to photography. Less dirty but full of 2nd cuts. 120 g down to 80g. Picture shows unwashed and washed , there were bronze tips. Staple about 2 inches on each.
