Back In The Saddle Again

On this final weekend of the Tour de Fleece, I took a break from knitting and decided to sample a couple fleeces for my next, next sweater.

The white (it really is :-/) yarn on the right is Cotswold Buddy's 2nd shearing and the yarn on the left was spun from a beautiful crossbred fleece purchased from a friend (that in addition won a ribbon at Maryland this year :-).

Interestingly, both were spun at about the same thickness (there's probably a scientific term for that), but the dark yarn "puffed" (another proper term for ya') whereas the Cotswold didn't, but has such a nice halo, that so far it's the winner. I've woven with yarn like that, but never knitted anything fuzzy...

There's always something new to look forward to on my never ending Tour de Fleece!
