Did you chop the Rams Wool and the seal or did you just blend the fibers in a coffee blender?

Thanks for the photograph. I’ve enlarged it and I can I’m really see one kind of material in it that being rams wool, both natural and dyed red. I see a very few coarser hairs in it, dog?
But I’m in the process of mixing some of my Rams wool with some red seal to see how close it is to the photograph and to your sample when I receive it.
Thank for your time in bothering to answer my questions And to the others that have participated in my quest.
