What materials did you use? I used some BFL in two shades of brown - they came from a sampler pack of British sheep breeds bought from Hilltopcloud on Etsy

What are you most proud of? I am really happy with the way that this yarn has come out. It is well balanced and I really enjoyed all the different stages needed to make the fluff onto stuff! I ended up with about 50yards of a 2ply - 13wpi.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Grab a spindle and have a go.
