Beautiful job!! I love the rustic texture of the North Ronaldsey! Was it pleasant to work with? I also think the colours and especially the orange looks so festive!!

Thank you, Dru, for your encouragement ! I really liked working with the North Ronaldsay. It's rustic, as you said, but also soft, but strong . . In the lighter shades of grey that are on some of this breed there is guard hair and the fiber is not as soft as the dark brown. I"ll send you some --I'd be delighted to ! I'm so grateful for this course ! I love the long draw spinning . Thank you again !
