Way back last year I arranged a swap with Angela on Fair Isle. She was sad that we had more types of wool at our disposal to try than she had on her little island. So I sent her a big box of all different types of wool, and she sent me a box of her Shetland fleece!
Of course, I had to sample some of it right away; the yarn sample above is three of the 4 kinds of Shetland, Navajo plied. The white is SO soft. Soft like kitty fur.
The 4 bags of Shetland fleece.
A treat! Angora-silk. This is maybe the softest thing I've felt so far. I can't wait to spin this!
And, I couldn't resist. 3 kitties. Sleeping Kitty Trifecta!
