|This what is left from what I spun. Doesn't it look like flannel? There is another wool yarn under this yarn popping out.
I spun some of the wool that I won from Cintia Sadrith Mora, at the Fiber Farm, in Corning, California. It looked like gray flannel. I made a 3 ply yarn with this wool and two other plies. A second ply was also from a Merino X wool but it was brown. I mixed this strand with a little teal wool here and there, giving the yarn a tweed effect when it was twisted with the other two plies. The third ply was made from our white angora rabbit hair. This brown/gray/white yarn was very interesting, especially with that teal tweed effect. I then knitted the yarn into a child hat, with an unusual pattern similar to a military garrison hat. At the bottom of the hat I used a 2 ply yarn made with the above wool, leaving out the brown Merino X. There are 3 gray buttons along the seam. I tried to take several pictures, but my normal hat stands are in use, so I used volunteers and a glass vase. Thank you for looking and may your home be filled with warmth and happiness! Dawn
