Obviously I didn't leave the woolen mill empty-handed. In fact, I bought so much that one bag wasn't enough. I've been on a yarn diet since before Christmas, so it felt good to just go ahead and buy the yarn I wanted (or a little less than that ;) Besides yarn I also bought three patterns, all lace shawls. I'm so happy with what I got! :)
Three different colours of 2 ply lace yarn, 200 g of each of them. Along with 300 g of Natural Shetland, probably a DK weight yarn. All of it is nice and soft :) And as I learned today this is due to a proper sorting of fleece.
Three shawl patterns I just had to have.
The first picture shows super fine and equally soft Shetland wool - the type used for cobweb lace yarn. To the right in the same picture is a piece of fleece taken directly from the one Oliver sorted for me to demonstrate how it was done by hand; it's greasy and smells of sheep - in a nice way, mind you :)
The picture to the right is the same carded wool you saw on the previous picture.
