This is a real mixed bag of fleece. Some of the locks are long and slinky, some are short and crimpy but it all went into the carder together.
Jo's socks were made from wool that Jo picked up in a field while she was on holiday. That worked out so well, Jo and I couldn't resist picking up loads more on a walk in the Peaks. There's a real variety here but altogether it's very nice.
I'm still new to dyeing, and want to see how differently things work out if I dye the skein of spun wool rather than the carded fleece before spinning. So here's the undyed fleece being spun. For a nice cosy hat, it'll be a little bit thicker than the sock yarn.
