[spinning] Sheep Shed

Two 2 oz bundles of merino/tencel from The Sheep Shed, purchased at the 2010 VT Sheep and Wool Festival:

Very easy and smooth to spin. Next time I might get a colorway with more similar colors, because the finished yarn looks a little crazy to me:

Ended up being dk-weight. Would make a nice stockinette watchcap, I think.

I love their fiber! I got some at the 2009 VtS&W that I spun up laceweight. Lovely stuff to work with.
I think that will make a super hat. It will be interesting to see how the yarn knits up - sometimes it turns out way different than you imagine it will.
