I've now finished spinning 1000 grams of N.Z. Corriedale in the color "Hazelnut". This is from commercially combed top purchased from "Aurelia Wool & Weaving".
The bright, blazing, blistering hot* sun kind of washed out the detail and color in the photo. Trust me, it's a beautiful colorway. It will eventually become a pullover sweater for my husband.
*At 10:30 A.M. it is already 86 degrees F. in my upstairs hallway.....and it will get much, much hotter before the day is through. My house is situated such that it gets all the morning sun blasting in the windows at the back of the house. It does a quick hop over the house at noon and then bakes us through the front windows until the sun goes down.
Needless to say, evenings are reserved for lying around downstairs whining or, after dinner when it gets "cooler", (HA!), lying around outside whining. I try to have everything that needs to be done upstairs accomplished by no later than 10 A.M. or the heat is just too much for me to handle. Potato salad and a veggie tray are waiting in the fridge for supper. Something barbecue-ish will be purchased as well.
My computer is UPstairs.
NOW.....before I melt away.
