After several months of anxious waiting my last batch of wool from the 2017 clip has arrived. I am still short of some but will have enough (fingers crossed) for the remaining shows this year.
The wool above is a lovely soft blend of our Shetland first-clip and some Romney fleece. It makes a beautifully airy wool with lots of 'bounce' in it. And I have started knitting with it already .... .I'm using it with some dyed Lammerloch blue to make yet another Surge shawl.
I got another lovely box full of my Simply Shetland Single - laceweight wool, and a batch of pale grey DK which we have christened
Haar - named after the North Sea mist which sometimes rolls inland at this time of year - sometimes cloaking us in fog for days.
All of these new items are now in the Store of this website and will be available at Woolfest
in a few weeks time.
Now we are just dyeing wool, waiting on wool bands to come back from the printer, and thinking about shearing the 2018 clip. More on that next time.
