Just finished the first yarn from the wool from Susie's lamb. This yarn is made from 3 separate dye lots which I blended on my drum carder and added a little yellow, red and orange wool which were from dye lots that I did last year with the wool from Susie's 2010 lamb. I also added a little Angelina which gives the yarn a little sparkle. I have over 800grams of the color way and it is Aran/worsted to chunky weight. I have listed some of it on my Etsy web site, www. etsy.com/shop/MarkreeWoolCraft If you are interested in more please contact me on my e-mail, email@example.com.
The yarn that is hanging is a process called 'setting the spin' the last part of producing yarn. The wool is soaked in warm water, I add a little essential oil, and then hang it out to dry with weights attached. This takes any kinks out of the yarn and is a bit like putting your hair in curlers and it makes the twist permanent
