There are 2 skeins of 2 oz. each with a total of 300 yards. I was quite surprised how the yarn bloomed when I washed it to set the twist. It fluffed up and is more of a worsted weight. I think it will make cozy mittens. I've got another 1/4 lb. batt and haven't decided if I will continue or do a different weight. The preparation of this wool and pygora is very nice. For more info on this and other lovely wool, contact Cary at Serenity Farms http://www.serenity-farms.com/ . She also sells fleeces and her sheep are covered so the dark colors don't get faded. Lovely wool Cary, thank you!
My other spinning projects have been assignments from the Master Spinners level one course (Olds College, Alberta). All assignment skeins are 10 yards and spun according to instructions. This weeks was spinning raw fleece in the grease, dip washed, washed and scoured. Samples of staples, in different stages and skeins to match are then mounted and notes document your procedures. Rather tedious but very interesting. I learned lots and learned that I will do some more spinning in the grease and dip-washing. There is way less water used, and in the end when the skeins are washed, the results are good!
