1st Project of 2022: Handspun Icelandic/Balwen Welsh Mtn yarn from Raw Fleece Neck Warmer

First project of 2022: Handspun yarn from raw fleece knitted neck warmer sample from “Olwen” Icelandic/Balwen Welsh Mountain cross from Ballyhoo Fiber Emporium (Kentucky).

I finally got up the energy to knit a small project from some of the raw fleece yarn samples I spun during last year’s Tour de Fleece. I had about 82 yards of worsted/aran weight 2-ply from this sample, so I decided to knit a small neck warmer–something I can use over the next few days now that it’s actually cold here in Alabama. (We’re even expecting snow on Sunday). I have two fleeces from Olwen, so I’m looking forward to working with them now that I’ve processed her fiber from raw to finished object. (I also have Olwen’s father’s fleeces “Akoya”–he’s pure Icelandic).
