Try, try, try again

fiber, hand spun

If you first don’t succeed, try, try again or something like that. Here is another attempt at showing you the amazing Romney and mohair I bought from The Pines Farm. The owners are very nice and helpful people. When my mother and I were at the fair and we couldn’t make a decision about what to buy, Lin Schwider came up to us and helped us pick out the perfect combinations.

Starting on the left: two bags of blue/purple Romney roving weighing about 23 ounces total, 6 ounces of blue/pink/fuchsia/purple mohair and yarn spun from the fiber. I will go into detail in a moment.

The yarn on the top is spun with Romney, while plying the two strands mohair was added. The yarn on the bottom was hand-carded 50/50 Romney and mohair. It was then plied with mohair.

This is 15 ounces of un-carded locks of Romney in shades of: blues, aquas, pinks, purples and greens.

Finally, here’s some blue/purple mohair!
