Pure Wensleydale yarn made from the long staple wool and then hand dyed. I made 400gms of this.
Some Wensleydale locks that I have named 'Storm Clouds'. These are hand dyed using food dye and the dye set in the microwave using the new steamer I got yesterday. I think that I will dye more in this colour way and then spin them up myself when my new spinning wheel arrives. I think that it will make a lovely art yarn. My new wheel is on its way from the US and I am really excited as it will spin any thickness of yarn
Lastly my soaps these I felt using a coarser fiber that is not really suitable to make into yarn as it is not soft enough
