Hello Yarn's Adrian dyes some nice fiber, I have to say. Take a look at this:
From 8 oz. of "Red Velvet" dyed Shetland top, I spun two bobbins and plied them together. A standard 2-ply, the final yarn is a heavy worsted or Aran weight, I'm guessing around 400 yds total.
People talk about felted roving, and stuff that needs preparation to spin, well. This was SO easy to spin from the thick hunk of top, it is what I would call a perfectly prepared ready to spin fiber. Thanks Adrian!
Definitely needs to be something for the baby, don't you think?
Things around the microfarm are doing well, I watched Eliza have her lamb this morning. Another healthy, cute little ram lamb! (I'll put some pics on the House of Wool Repute blog I think...) the eggs are in the incubator, and the grass is greening up.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
