This is why I love handprocessing fleeces, why I love natural colored wool, and why I love handspinning. All summed up in one skein of yarn.
That little bit of black marled with the gray, taupe and creams.
The fuzzy halo.
The little nubbins of an end or tip of a lock here and there.
And how, something with no fancy colors, can have so much depth of texture, and such a range of subtle tones.
This isn't a fleece that makes a super soft sproingy yarn like Cormo, or CVM. This fleece makes a fuzzy, hairy, silky-draping, softly variegated yarn. It likes to be spun to a nice worsted weight, and not perfectly even and smooth. Letting it be spun this way really rewards me with a pretty cool yarn I think.
One you definitely couldn't buy commercially. And the colors, you can only get this from handprocessing, sent to the carding mill, this would come back a uniform light gray.
Now, wouldn't fuzzy cuffs on a nice sweater be kind of cool? Or fuzzy mitten cuffs?
