Some spinning, one half of a pair of socks, a little alpaca, and me blathering:)Welcome to Episode 30
Historic Cold Spring Village has sheep, and therefore, yarn they sell at their cute country store! I picked up some worsted weight, 2 ply yarn wool in a color called blueberry.
I’ve finished the Coopworth sheep wool from Winter’s Past Farm, and their site is www.winterspastfarm.com. It is 2 plied, and I will more than likely use it in a project to be fulled. It is not a soft fiber, but the color is lovely. I got about 143 yards and a heavy worsted weight.
Next on the wheel is some lovely dyed Alpaca fiber from Flatland Alpacas, their site is www.flatlandalpacas.com. Another 2 ply yarn will be spun, and I think I’ll call it “Creamsicle.”
