More red yarn here, but not at all the red of vacations to come. It’s more of a chipotle red – a deep smoky spicy red as the silver and brown of the natural wool shines through.
The wool is from Rosie, another of my Lincoln Longwool friends who lives on a farm in Western NY. Her natural wool is silver, tan, gray, brown, charcoal– everything however white.
Her fleece has been handspun from the locks into a semi-smooth, semi-curly skein of 52 yards.
The yarn is fairly large and heavy but soft. It will surely keep an individual warm if required.
I would make use of a size 13 or bigger needle for knitting. Be sure to knit or crochet rather freely as you do not wish to choke this yarn.
This wool will certainly wet-felt.
Thanks from everyone at KnoxFarmFiber.
