I mentioned in an earlier post that I obtained some wool from Acacia Acres farms. A dark grey romney named Ashley and a white romney named Ebony.
Over the weekend I did some blending. I made a 50% – 50% blend of dark grey and white. It makes a lovely light grey that I featured in that earlier post. This time I spun a couple of full bobbins of the blended grey. Next I spun a bobbin full of dark grey/Ashley and plied that with the lighter blended grey. Blended greys are on top and the dark grey/Ashley is in the lower bobbin.
The plied yarn from these singles, are the skein on the left. The skein on the right is a two-ply of blended greys and white Ebony.
And the same photo with the flash on, you can see the barber polling a bit better in this photo.
I am really happy with this yarn — both skeins are going to be knit up into half-mitts. Haven’t decided if I will do any dyeing with these yet. But that’s a whole other variation on the theme.
