In Which the Pirate Shows Off.

One of my goals at Sheep and Wool was to purchase fibers that I’d never tried before. Here’s the haul. Not pictured: the Finn/Mohair I posted about on Sunday, and the pound of raw Romney that Janis has taken with her. I have spun Romney before, but it was dyed/processed stuff, so this counts as a new experience too.

Falkland Top from Bullen’s Wullens.

80/20 Merino/Silk from Bullen’s Wullens in the same colorway. I plan to spin this separately from the Falkland and then ply them together.


80/20 Merino/Silk from Cloverleaf Farm. I could not resist these colors!


“Starry Night” is 50/50 Wool/Mohair with some Angelina for sparkle, from Tintagel Farm.

corriedale-solids glitz

Corriedale Solids from Stony Mountain Fibers, and a variety of glitz. With the nylon roving that I ordered from Sheep Shed Studio, I plan to card this into batts for spinning sock yarn.

Not a bad haul, and not over my budget, either! I am really looking forward to experimenting with all this stuff. It should be enough to keep me busy until next year’s Sheep & Wool festival!
