I had fun spinning this wool blend. It was nice and spongy like merino really. I'm not sure how much of the other wool types are represented in this blend. I bought this roving because I liked all the rich brown colors.
These skeins are destined to become a hat and probably thrummed mittens for Brad. I should have enough yardage for those two projects. I just need to get some fiber for the thrums. I think just about everything I have in my stash is dyed in bright colors. I think I'd like to find something more natural in a brown or off white.
This yarn ended up a little more uneven with more thick and thin sections than I've had in a while. I'm going to put that down to speeding through the whole process. This time I was just spinning to relax and go through the motions.
