I keep getting introduced to fibres I haven't used before. It started with seacell, camel, banana tops and now dairy sheep tops. A while back a Raveler talked about having just spun some dairy sheep fibre (edited to add: it's an East Frisian sheep breed) and I curious as to what it was because I hadn't heard of it yet. She then surprised me with a 50g sample from Chantimanou that I immediately took to my wheel.
The fibre was dyed in shades of blue and green which has resulted in a lovely colour for the finished yarn. The material itself is very coarse and can be difficult to spin, so I had to pay attention to what I was doing. The finished yarn is therefore a coarse single ply - I still need to wash and measure it and decide what it can be used for.
Another new fibre, another experience! Now I need a break from the more unusual materials and get back to my usual suspects though.
