Spun and Done – Great White Bale Spinning Complete

The spinning of my Texel fleece is complete.

1,480 yards   50 grams = 200 yards

The closest comparable commercial yarn I’ve been able to find (in terms of weight and yardage) is Rowan Felted Tweed. That looks about right, based on a visual comparison.

The next thing I need to do is find a suitable pattern to knit. More on this in the coming days.

I’ll happily take suggestions.


    • I was planning on using the yarn undyed. I really like the creamy white color. Also, I’ve never dyed anything before and I don’t think I want to experiment on something that’s taken this much effort 😉 I’ll try that on something I’ve bought and don’t care that much about. 🙂

  1. Lovely! When I saw the natural look and color of your yarn, two projects came to my mind: Port o’ Leith by Kate Davies and Such a Winter’s day by Heidi Kirrmaier. But it seems that Your yarn is a bit too thin… Perhaps You have enough to hold it double? Or You can always make a Still Light… 🙂

    • I thought about Such a Winter’s Day. I need to do some swatching to see what works with this yarn. I’m new to long-draw so I need a pattern that will be forgiving of a bit of unevenness.
