More lovely wool has arrived from the Mill

Whenever I get a parcel back from the Mill, it is so exciting. You sent the Mill a selection of fleeces and what is coming back are some gorgeous yarns. Always feels like Christmas… And the fleeces I had to source where within 5 miles of our home, you can’t get more local than that.

This time I had my Llanwenog lamb fleeces blended with some cream coloured Alpaca from my friend Emma’s Alpaca herd. What a wonderful yarn, I am well pleased with the end result. It knits extremely well, holds the shape because of the wool content, but also soft and drapery because of the Alpaca.

Then I have been given 3 Jacob fleeces by one of my neighbours, which I had spun into a speckled/marl effect yarn, again, much better than I had anticipated, also knits up very well.

One of the fleeces from Emma’s Alpaca herd is black, it was spun into a lustrous yarn, ideal for scarves/cowls and wraps , hats and gloves. It would be so warm and soft. The yarn has an amazing sheen.
