The Leicester Longwool Sheep have arrived. Just a handful for fiber since I have become enamoured with spinning Leicester locks.
English Leicester Longwool locks dyed and spun into a bulky weight yarn. The locks have been spiral thread plyed with a fine 2 ply laceweight angora yarn.
I used a combination of a size Q/15.75 mm and a size R/17mm hooks. I have a lovely pair handturned by Jenkins. I wanted to show off the yarn, the texture, and the curls.
I did crochet and deconstruct this shawl numerous times before I liked the arrangement of colors. But I am pretty pleased with it now that it is in the shop.
