The Tour De Fleece has come to an end-three weeks of spinning almost every day. It is a great time to use up that wool stash.
|Border Leicester on the Wheel|
I spun Border Leicester, Bluefaced Leicester,
Romney, Cotswold and Angora
|Angora-Bluefaced blend on the wheel|
I plan on using the yarn to knit up something for Delaney, so she has something made, from the wool, of her beloved bunny.
Romney Lamb fleece, she was a messy lamb,
and there was quite a bit of VM in her fleece.
I love the color, as I don't get many brown fleeces from the sheep.
It was worth the extra work, picking out pieces of hay.
|Blue Faced Leicester Yarn|
The Bluefaced Leicester was a fun spin.
What color to dye it?
I tried some bulky yarn with the Cotswold roving
that I picked up at the Wooster Ohio fiber show.
It has been so hot here, there was only one day of outdoor spinning.
The rest of the spinning was done
in front of a fan or air conditioner.
The total yards spun 1,380
