Hampshire Sheep Breed

 This little sample skein 
came off the wheel recently.
It is part of my Down Breed study, Hampshire wool.
 I purchased this as roving from Dyed in the Wool.
 It was a nice wool for long draw so the yarn is woolen spun.
It is springy and sweet.
I like the sample in natural.
I will be spinning the other 3.5 oz in color.
On to the dye pot next!


  1. Trying out new breeds is so much fun!

  2. You're a spinner, too? Since I'm a new follower, I have a lot of catching up to do. ;o)

    The sample skein looks wonderful. I looks like it would be a delight to knit.

  3. The top photo almost looks like it has a little silk in it. Can't wait to see what you dye up.

  4. Those sheep are so cute. The fiber looks springy and comfortable!


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!
