What is left has a staple length of about 4-5 inches and I really look forward to processing it to see what results.
The cut side of the fleece is a lovely oatmeal color, while the tip ends are more yellow.
I did bundle up about 6 oz of it into mesh bags to soak and wash over the next couple of days and I will be interested to see what the final color will be.
I finished the Romney silver that I started a few weeks ago and ended up with about 5 oz of worsted weight yarn. It was a pleasure to card and spin.
As a break from all the neutral colors, I have also been spinning up Dark Cathedral, by JulieSpins. I originally thought it would be for socks but I think I am spinning too thin for that. As a two ply, it should make pretty dramatic lace weight yarn. This yarn is superwash merino, bamboo, and nylon.
And the shopping bag is coming along nicely. My hands are getting used to the coarseness of the hemp fiber and it is a simple enough pattern to carry along for portable knitting.
