To the spinners on the list: If you have a chance to order wool top from
DHF Falklands you'll be in for a treat. My 3-pound sampler pack arrived in
Monday's mail via surface mail and Royal Post from the Falkland Islands. I
got about three ounces spun last night and made a fantastic two-ply.
The white top (22 microns, give or take) is simply divine and runs through
my fingers like warm butter -- the only snags happen because I haven't been
keeping up on my lotion. The colored top (brown and gray, 28 microns) is
I'll be ordering at least one 3# pack every quarter, possibly more as the
white is quite yummy and I'm sure will take dye very well. I wouldn't
hesitate to make baby garments with any of it, and the socks I'm planning
should be simply fabulous.
I may have just been spoiled for anything else :)
