Puyallup Fair Yarn~ 2 Ply HandSpun

I call this my "Puyallup Fair " yarn because I spun it up while exhibiting my Jacob Sheep at the Western Washington State Fair.
Click onto any picture to view close-up. This yarn is the spun wool fleece of my ram, Goth. He is a 4 horned Jacob Sheep Ram*. You can view pictures of him and some of my other sheep by clicking onto the asterisk.
There is a lot of wool in this skein, 9 5/8 ounces and more than 260 yards. The yarn is about 10 to 12 wraps per inch. Goth's wool yarn is perfect for making hats, socks, mittens. I find this is a good wool yarn for weaving durable table runners and scarves too. The gray yarn is perfect for over-dying too, giving a rich multi-hued color to this naturally variegated hand-spun.
