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

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
