What I've been up to.......

Here's what I've been up to the past 2 days - dyeing roving - around 30 pounds of it. Above there's a bit of superwash merino for Lynne (white with black & red spots) in the Abalone colorway (formerly dalmation until I saw it spun up). The rest is all Blue Face Leicester.
Below is a bit more of the Blue Face Leicester and the rest is all Wensleydale. I love the luster of the Wensleydale - sure wish it were a softer next-to-the-skin wool. It's great for rugs, wall hangings, saddle blankets, people blankets and socks - makes great socks......would probably be good for a vest since that's not right up against the skin.
