The Polwarth is a delightful fiber that comes from New Zealand; a cross breeding of Merino and Lincoln. I can't wait to knit this into my swatch and see how it lays! This yarn is next-to-the-skin soft! I ordered it from DyedintheWool.biz and it is naturally this chocolate brown color! This breed comes in a full range of browns and even white. I highly recommend adding this fiber to your spinning repertoire!
I have 306 yards from the 4 ounces I purchased.
More than enough to get two pairs of fingerless mitts after my binder swatch!
A very soft skein of fingering weight yarn.........
I finished my two socks from another Christmas gift-this is Patons Droy Socks FX in the clover colors. I knit each sock straight from the skein-I didn't try to match because I wanted to use every inch of the yarn and I did! I interrupted the k2p2 ribbing of the leg with a bit of lace pattern that uses k2p2 also so it was just fun to knit for me as it won't show too much up my pant leg! lol
We are preparing for freezing temps the next two mornings-the chimney is cleaned, the fire started and the cats are congregating! Smart kitties!
