Outside the Comfort Zone
Ok I admit that I have 3lbs of Ramboulliet from the 2010 Connecticut Sheep and Wool Festival, but I couldn't wait to get spinning on this fiber I bought from Rhinebeck. I instructed my BKFF, Mary to make me step out of my comfort zone and get colors that I don't usually get. This meant no purples or blues. I can't remember if this is Alpaca or Merino, but it is spinning up like a dream. I purchased 8oz and plan on two-plying it to have more yardage and a finer yarn. I see a nice shawlette or scarf. This color will look great against my purple coat.
