… I’ve forgotten what this is except for that it is wool from a herd of endangered heritage sheep at Colonial Williamsburg.
Preliminary/bad photo of: 25/74 bison/alpaca blend. 1oz, 2 ply. Yardage: hopefully enough for a hat.

The finished results of this dye-experiment roving! I’m really pleased with it!
My first go at chain/navajo plying! I really really like the results. This very well be my default playing method from now on.
I plied the single I spun using this roving.
This is the spun result of this roving which I dyed a few weeks ago.
I bought this lovely black walnut bottom/top whirl spindle at the Farmer’s Market last weekend! It’s a lot lighter than my other and is a pleasure to spin on!
I thought it would be interesting to look at a step-by-step process of creating this yarn.
