Last week I managed to exchange a gallon of our Elderflower Champagne for these….
The fleece on the left is from a Whitefaced Woodland and the one on the right came off a Jacob Sheep. I think I got a pretty good deal!
Other woolly goings-on this week have involved a spot of natural dyeing with Kamala extract….
and a spot of spinning……
This was some jacob ‘humbug’ roving that was a dream to spin. I can see why Jacob is recommended to beginner spinners – it’s the easiest thing I’ve spun and, although not the softest fibre out there, it makes up for it by being wonderfully light and airy.
