I found masham fiber to be silky, have a nice luster, slightly crispy and bit of prickle(wow I feel like I’m at a wine tasting or something).
I was left wondering if masham sheep have horns though. After some of the pics I found on flickr. After my research I found that they can be horned or polled.
I used the color peach from cushing’s acid dyes. It took color well.
I finally finished blocking skywalker. I think it looks great. I wetblocked this the way I would wash it. I was afraid that heat might destroy the sequins.
Anyway I decided since I was blocking stuff that a new investment for blocking was needed ( as the floor with the cat and dog are not an option and my hubs accidentally destroyed my ironing board). I finally decided on coco knits knitter’s block. I was only about to find them on Jimmy Beans Wool and Halcyon Yarn. They seem to be sold out everywhere else. Hopefully they will be available to everyone soon.
