I spun up the beautiful light brown. I find I am really liking this wool. The brown was super soft and had a tendency to nepps. I took out many of the nepps but some stayed making a slightly thin and thick yarn.
The white was dyed robins egg blue with Cushings Acid Dyes. I thought the brown and the blue would look great together in a fair isle or striped hat. I need to finish spinning the blue but got enough done to show today.
The colors aren’t quite a dark as shown in the picture. I think they look great together.
