Tour de Fleece day 4

I woke up early so I made a start on a bag of cheviot that I carded a couple of weeks ago, quick, thick ,'rustic' spin. 

110 g of rather creamy cheviot which will probably be dyed at some point.

and into the wash bag it goes., here you can see how creamy it looks compared to the Balwen/Texel from earlier this week.

In case you are wondering how I tell the whites apart, I colour code them with a bit of coloured yarn round the skein and also through a separate label with the breed on. This way I can just match them up once washed.

I'm not sure what to spin next, whatever it is, I'll be having to prep it tonight !


I've decided, I'll have a bash at the Zwartble fleece :-)

How could I resist???

Safe spinning xx

I love your organization. I can't tell you how many bags of mystery fiber I have and how many mystery skeins. I never learn.

I have bags of unknown spun yarn so I'm trying to be organized. All washed fibre is stored in pillowslips with the breed written on the outside. maybe I should add the date but that would get embarrassing as I know I have fleece dating back several years.
