Wensleydale— or “Cheese! Gromit”

Assuming I actually get the camera out and do something about it, I will have pictures of the alpaca and a comparison picture of the new CMF BFL compared to the previous skein. Those are all washed and dried.

But what I wanted to say is that long-staple wool is the best stuff for mindless spinning. The Wennsleydale [sic] was really glorious to spin. The yarn it makes is still harsh, but beats the nasty spider-leg Icelandic. The color is wimpy. I was not planning to ply this but I think I will because the singles are thinner than I would want for the project I have in mind. Good thing I have a scale now. I really like spinning this wool. I will be looking for more of it for other projects.
