So with no further adieu I want to show the yarns I finished recently.
|Spun from Blue-Face Leicester top from The Woolery|
|Spun from Icelandic Top also from The Woolery.|
This Icelandic wool is not the clouds of dream like BFL, but it was soft and strudy if a tad on the itchy side. I could see it used in a hat or outer garment but not in a scarf or directly against the skin. I found the Icelandic the easiest to draft of three wools I have tried so far. This skein weighs 2 oz and I started with 2 oz of fiber--I lost very little fiber to unmanagable snarls and found it easier to join fiber.
I am not sure what I will do with all my big funky beautiful yarn yet. I really like this pillow I made to display my very first yarn wich was quite slubby.
