While I am waiting for bunnies to grow and to be born (2 weeks) I thought it might be timely to include you on on a sweater project that is underway here at the shop. Starting this Saturday, a monthly class will meet to explore turning freshly clipped sheep's wool into a hand spun, hand knit sweater. WOOL TO WEAR will be the vehicle that FINALLY gets me a hand spun sweater from my bunnies, so I plan to include about 35% angora as I blend my fibers for spinning.
I have some lovely corriedale/rambouillet grease fleece in charcoal:
...and some cormo fleece that I intend to dye a dark gray/blue/green:
...and some charcoal angora fleece:
I have made some sample skeins of all the fibers blended together but left undyed, and decided there needs to be a highlight to make the yarn more interesting. So, tomorrow I wash all fleece and dye the cormo. Stay tuned!
