I picked up two boxes of Ohio Valley Natural Fibers processed roving this morning. They did their usual fantastic job, and here are some photos to show for it.

I finally got Gremlin's fleece processed. It's got great handle!
This is mohair brindle with two shades of purple in it too. This is mohair brindle with two shades of purple in it too.
This is Orchid, Trillian/Astor, and Berry fleeces, with two shades of dyed merino included in the brindle. I love Ohio Valley processing!

Oops - I am lax. Thank you SO much for the bag o' fibers and the various opinions rendered therein!

There is seriously no way for me to know how old some of those fleeces were. They could have been in that house for YEARS. I don't seem to have gotten any kind of moth infestation, though I'm religiously vacuuming my Kilim rug for the next few months.

You're quite welcome. It was fun bringing them to the spinning group for examination, especially with your emailed photos of the house for illustration. The negative opinions were mostly because the fleeces were breaking when we tugged on the fibers.

You might want to invest in some wool moth traps just to see if you got anything evil. Those buggers can take months to hatch and escape.
