Two Rambouillet Fleeces, skirted, washed, carded by Spinderella and now hand spun. I have a bit over two pounds of the white one and 1 lb 11 oz of the brown one. Sorry for the dark part in the picture, I could not convince the brown to show up properly.
Part of the brown fleece was used for a jacket I knit for my husband a while back.
Spun with the Roberta electric spinner it is 15 wpi each skein is 8 oz.
I do not know the total yardage because some skeins where made while the yardage counter was out of service. I have yet to wash it and set the twist. Then it will sit quietly in a corner while we thing what it might become.
The initial plan was a stranded coat for me...but maybe it will just become plan C woven cloth with alpaca yarn for weft....we'll see. I don't think there is enough to go for plan B: a shadow weave blanket. I will have to use a different weft.
We'll see. I love processing fiber from hoof to cloth. This one is almost there.
