Hilltop Cloud Fiber

Having had fun spinning my first yarn earlier this year, I wanted to keep going and not wait too long before spinning again, but not having any fiber at hand (I have several fleeces that still need carding) I ordered some from Hilltop Cloud, 4 braids of 4 different sheep breeds. Now to spin it all up.

So this is how it arrived:

The people at Hilltop Cloud even sent a small sample of Sparkley Polwarth (Polwarth, Alpaca, Silk & Stelina) for me to try out.

So the first braid is Black Welsh Mountain

then some Cheviot

And here it is all together.

    São todas extremamente apetitosas, também tenho Jacob para experimentar, e já fiei cheviot, que adorei e recomendo. Se és fã de lãs naturais (não pintadas) e queres experimentar várias raças aconselho-te a explorar a loja worldofwool.co.uk, eles tem imensas raças disponíveis. A Sara’s texture crafts é mais centrada em lã pintada, mas também tem os “straight from the farm tops” que são muito apetecíveis (estou a adorar a minha Romney marsh que lhe comprei). Outros sítios para lãs naturais: fondant fibre, john arbon textiles, wingham wool works, jamieson and smith (só shetland) e adelaide walker
