I've been taking advantage of the current spinning kick to try to spin down some of the stash. i bought 8oz of shetland roving at last year's Finger Lakes Fiber Festival.
there's 356yds/235g total of 3ply aran weight. i spun the roving longdraw and soaked and thwacked to finish.
this wool was minimally processed. it still had that sheepiness to it and there was a lot of VM. it'a another one of those nice wooly-wools with a rustic charm. i think the yarn would make great mittens or a sweater yoke. something with texture, like cables.
