Pat's Hat - Step 2, spun and plied yarn

Now spun and plied, this is the 'found' wool that Jo and I picked up on this visit to the Peak District. It's a Heinz 57 of sheep varieties, but I'm pleased with how soft it feels.

I have two skeins, approx 75 turns each of the 15" niddy = 150*4*15 / 36 = 250 yards.

I dyed the fibre before spinning for my last project. This time I'm going to do it the other way around to see the difference. First to decide on a colour.... and a pattern...
