Joan: 

I’ve been practicing a little on my spinning wheel. I spun and plyed some off-white wool with colored wool (roving purchased already dyed). I’ll use it to make something with the pretty green wool I got from John H.

The other pictures are of Deer Hollow Farm wool I recently received back from Valley Oak Wool & Fiber Mill. This year I tried a blend of Finn fleece (dark brown) and off-white from a Romney cross sheep. It was fun to twist up all of the skeins – 68 this year.

The pictures are: a sample of the three types of yarn; a few skeins of Finn sheep breed only – dark brown; several dark brown with a little white blended in; lots of skeins with a balanced blend of dark brown and white. Contact Joan if you are interested in purchasing any yarn.
