Yarn for Diane

Fallon on the wheel....
Yes, it has been busy at our household... The least of which has been preparing fiber and spinning for one of our CSA shareholders. The fiber is a blend of Shetland wool from our ewe Fallon and some lovely alpaca from a small fiber farm in Escanaba.
It is a lovely dark taupe shade with lighter cream accents from the alpaca blended into it.

These are singles on the bobbins which will be plied into a light worsted weight yarn. I have a few more bobbins to spin up before I'm done! Diane will be turning it into a cardigan using a rediscovered pattern that some of the knitting crowd are quite excited about.
