|Green Nasty Romney on the picker|
Weighed out and carded all the batts, ran them through three times to completely blend the colors. I also noticed that I missed one combination in the original posting, so I did that one too. I think it was the 25% Green and 75% Gray that was missing from the lineup.
Here's a shot of the completed one ounce batts.
|March Stashdown Color Study Batts|
100% Green Nasty Romney (GNR)
75% GNR 25% Dolly Dorset (DD)
50% GNR 50% DD
25% GNR 75% DD
Being the orderly sort, I started on the green end and started spinning. The GNR is a delight to spin, long and silky, still picking out veg and second cuts and a few noils. As I mentioned, not the most impressive fleece I've ever worked with, but it is making up a nice yarn.
Finished up the 100% GNR batt, plied and washed the skein and here's the result:
