From Fiber to Yarn :: Corriedale Combed Top ::

It’s been on my Spindlewood Mini spindle for a while now but today the second skein finally got finished. Sunset Fibers‘ combed top has been spun and plied on the fly to preserve the lovely color sequence. I intend to knit this yarn into a pair of socks to see how well hand-spun yarn holds up. Corriedale is supposed to be fairly well-suited for stuff where you’d want a bit more durability then finer Merino could provide. I’ll try and see.
