Once I participated in a ‘spinning longwool’ workshop of the OLG.
Amanda was our tutor.
During that time we were on holiday in England and being in Wensleydale I bought a fleece.

Beauties! The photo isn’t mine.
I got permission to use it from the owner of this website …..use the link to admire her felting.
A couple of years the wool stayed in my stash!
Not that I forgot it….oh no….time was the real reason.
Until now…..

imageAll fibers long and short are combed with a Flickr. The short ones are going on my drum carder, the long ones not. Otherwise they will be trapped on the carder.

CloudsIt feels so soft!

Once upon a time the postman brought me a parcel with beautiful tops!
They came from the UK from Amanda. My favorite colours!Thank you!!

These tops are BFL (BlueFaced Lester)-Tussah silk 70/30.

The weight is 147 and 57 gram. The  length  is 905 and 267 meter.

The ‘single’ yarn was steamed to ‘set’ the twist.
steamNow how shall I use it….’Lace’ knitting or weaving?!

In the same parcel was this luxurious Tussah silk too….still silently waiting…..
