The wool had to be delivered. I didn’t take my things out first because I thought everyone would want to see mine too. We met at Jans as she is in the middle. See its not that much wool. There is room for lots more in my car.
Before we started Judy brought some interesting wool for Jan to use as witch hair. It is Scottish Mule. It is a cross between a Sottish Black Face and a Bluefaced Leicester.
The first box had my Finish batts
Jans core wool, shetland prefelt and Fawn Corriedale roving. Can you believe it? Jan took so many pictures and non of her own pile. Here’s a shot of the prefelt.
and then unexpectedly my sample packs were at the very bottom.
They are Bambino and Glitzy sample packs. I will keep one of each and sell the rest.
Then it was time for box 2 We got a few things out of the top
But then it was time to up-end it.
It was fun sorting who had what.
I got some wool called tweed it is South American wool and viscose. I got pink and grey I liked the look of it. I think it would make a nice hat. It was compressed down so I opened it to have a better look. Oh look, there is Jans core wool behind.
Isn’t it cool looking?
Then it started to get windy so we had to get the tent down.
And then it was time for me to head home before it decided to start Raining too.
You can see Jan added a trumpet Vine to my box. It is continuing to add roots in a bucket under the apple tree.
That was our adventure in wool buying, I hope you enjoyed it.
