Pillows in Progress
It seems like it would be an easy thing to do, but making these pillows is going to be a Huge job. You see two finished pillows in this bunch here on the couch, but still a fair few yet to finish here. The reason it is such a big job is that I am stuffing them with wool from our sheep. This job involves hand washing the fleeces, then drying each washed fleece and then carding the wool(combing and fluffing it out) before stuffing each pillow. Each pillow has one kilogram of washed wool in it, so they are very full and solidly stuffed. The two I have finished so far are the yummiest pillows I have ever felt and will last a long time so I think the effort is worthwhile, though painfully tedious.
