Longwool Love <3

Three longwools this week! Oh! It was heaven โค

#23– Devon Longwool

This one started as a buttery natural color; I dyed up in a color called ‘Whisper’– it’s basically a tonal lavender/lilac. It was a wonderfully easy spin! The finished yarn has a bit of a halo.

1.2 ounces spun up into 50 yards of sport.

#25–Lincoln Longwool

This colorway is called ‘Lipstick’– it’s reds, pinks, corals…I love how it spun up ๐Ÿ˜‰ Again, an easy spin. Lincoln has less of a halo, and is a little softer than Devon, though still a bit coarse. Fantastic drape, though.

1.6 ounces became 52 yards of DK.

#27– Teeswater

Amazingly gorgeous luster; Teeswater is just dying to be dyed in jewel tones– the finished yarns would be so gorgeous! Teeswater was a little bit more slippery than the other two, but quite a bit softer, too. I wouldn’t mind having a Teeswater cowl…something bulky and luscious. Such a gorgeous breed! There wasn’t really any difference between the two samples; I just experimented with spinning them different weights.

1.6 ounces of undyed Teeswater became 32 yards of worsted; .6 ounces of dyed Teeswater became 24 yards of sport weight.

So that’s what I spun for this week ๐Ÿ˜‰ Monday night I’ll be washing up an Icelandic lamb fleece I bought, as well as my Warhill…that’s what I’ll be spinning all next week, actually. My Icelandic (I received 3 ounces of lamb roving from the Willow Glen breed study, and bought a 13 ounce lamb fleece from her as well), and my Warhill (4 ounces raw, but it’s so dirty I’m thinking maybe 50% loss, so probably 2 ounces of that to spin). I’ll make sure to take tons of progress photos…it’s going to be an interesting week ๐Ÿ˜‰
