Forty Shades of Green

I have just started working on this fleece,  again a huge fleece with such a long staple it is easy to mistake it for pure Wensleydale.  This yarn is made from several different dye lots but all using the same dye.  The shades are very different but when they are blended on the drum carder the yarn comes out a fairly even shade,  I blended it with a green Angelina to give it plenty of  sparkle.   I have called it Forty Shades of Green because of the colour and the sparkle make it  'Country and Western' and also the late Johny  Cash stayed in Markree castle for several days and recorded some songs there and so this is a tribute to him
