The Latest Spin... gourmet
Gourmet is one word that well describes this most very beautiful fiber that was given to me by John Kerr. It is one of the most beautiful fiber preparations I have ever seen and looks good enough to eat! Caramel with berries and cream! Thank you so very much, John. I can't wait to sink into it.
John tells me it is from Wellington Fibres in Ontario and is one of their "Mystery Rovings" meaning it may contain any combination of alpaca, wool and mohair. The Mohair from their own goats, mixed breed wool from Wolf Island in eastern Ontario, and alpaca from local growers.
I just want to set this bowl of fiber on the table and feast my eyes upon it for a while! It is that beautiful. I'm giddy with glee!
The ideas are already churning for a very thin single 2-plyed for weaving or lace knitting.
I will post updates on the journey that awaits this luscious fiber.
Thanks again, John.
