there’s so much lanolin in this yarn!

These two skeins are from merino fleece mixed with baby Alpaca, baby Camel, Super fine merino and silk. My last post shows a pic of the singles on the bobbins.

You can see how dirty that fleece colour looks compared to how lovely and grey and clean it looks now. That fleece was a beautiful coated fleece so I think most of that creamy colour must be from the lanolin in it.

I’ve soaked it and even now you get that lanolin feel on your hands. It’s not a sticky horrible feel it’s a really soft like you’ve lightly touched skin cream feeling? Its hard for me to describe but this feels amazing soft and has zero itch near my skin..

So I had to take a pic of them near my chili plants (no chili’s yet but lots of flowers) and my 4 sunflower seedlings that are going strong!.

I’m going to plant them out in the garden bed on the weekend. I’m planning my next fibres to spin and once I’ve decided what type of yarn I’m going to make I’ll get cracking on that..

Chat soon xx

  1. Your yarn does looks so soft and smooshy and your plants! We are in a deep freeze here, temps in the minus 20 c and minus 30c, water froze up to the barns so hubby had to haul water to a large tub and we have a heater in it!!
