Day 5 TdF 2011

Yesterday was day 5 of this year's Tour de Fleece and I spent my day finishing up this project. This is the first wool batt that I made using my Ashford Wild Drum Carder. So you can see the progression from wild fibers to combed batt. Then I spun that up. Next I made a singles yarn with just plain, black Merino. Finally I plied the two together to make a worsted weight yarn with lots of glitz and just enough texture to keep things interesting.

Pretty! I don't usually like black yarn, but this one is intriguing.
