54 yards, 8.2 oz., Super-bulky

This yarn was so much fun to spin! It is spun up entirely of handfuls of fleece. I hand-dyed up some Border Leicester fleece I bought at Finger Lakes Fiber Festival and some Coopworth I bought from Sandy at Homestead Wool and Gift and added in handfuls of the natural colored fleece too. Into the mix I added some beautiful sari silk in natural ecru, gold, and pinks. I reached into the mix without fluffing out the wool locks and just fed it to my spinning wheel. Then I plied everything up with a slubby linen/cotton thread. This is a gigantic yarn - over half a pound - and would make a fabulous project. I'm putting it here for now but may end up knitting it myself if it hangs around!
