Southdown

I now have 200 yards of two ply sport yarn
from the breed of sheep called Southdown.
This yarn is from the class of sheep called down breeds 
so it is springy and plump!
There will be little to no felting when washed.
It is next to the skin soft.
Other than the nepps in this particular fleece, 
this was a great spin and will be a pleasurable knit!
And Lena jumped into the warm ~clean~ clothes when I set the basket down for just a minute
on the way to take them to fold!
Of course, I left her there and she took a 2 hour nap all nestled snugly!

  1. It must be gratifying to create your own yarn. The Southdown looks as luscious as you describe.

  4. What a sweet kitty. I'm surprised it won't felt too.

  5. But of course you left Lena there for her nap...it’s just wrong to disturb a kitty who has found a cozy sleeping spot!

  6. Lena has the right idea, especially as it has cooled down here in Florida. Love your beautiful yarn.
