Correidale ala Sabrina
A skein of Corrie, plied and hung, upon the shower til she was done.
This is the first skein of the lovely Corriedale that I traded Babytaz (Knittyboard) for. I have a whole lb. of this lovely fiber, and I'd say this skein is about 3.5 oz or so. From a sheep called Sabrina no less!
My standard 2 ply, plied back from a center pull ball....
This is the most even yarn I've spun to date. After plying and winding into a hank, it was perfectly balanced, even before the final soak. The roving is fairly thin, and ever so soft.
Very quick to spin on my wheel, I didn't even predraft this roving at all!
Props to those at the Frankenmuth fiber mill!
I definitely see nice overdyeing possibilities in the future of this fiber....it went so well with the Moorit Shetland, I bet gray makes a nice base too.
I had a wonderful trip to Albuquerque and Santa Fe this past weekend, met Spin (see side bar for her blog!) and her wonderful family, and gave Murray and Hendrix to them to love! Spin has the cutest kids, a hyperactive Chihuahua named Thor, and a wonderful husband. Thanks spin for the lovely handspun alpaca! The roses! The BBQ! (I'd take pics, but the camera is off with Nate for the week....)
Santa Fe is always a treat. Even more so when and event like the Spanish Market is going on.
