In Which the Pirate Spins Some More.
Next up: 200g of white Southdown (from World of Wool) that is destined to be sock yarn!
The Corriedale singles are resting before I ply them, but this fibre has been calling to me for a while. I’ve heard that Southdown makes excellent yarn for socks – bouncy and resistant to felting – so here’s to experimentation! I haven’t decided if I want to make this a two-ply or three, yet. (Opinions? Advice? Input? It’s a matter of yardage vs durability, I think?)
I’ve also heard that the wool from Suffolk sheep is good for socks, so I have 200g of that in a natural grey as well, and will probably spin it next…
