Fine fleece

This is a finer fleece than I have been dyeing up, but I could resist the colours when I saw it at Woolfest, and it's from a breeder that I have bought from before, with excellent results.

It's a merino x shetland x wensleydale, in all sorts of greys and browns with a few streaks of white, and I did photograph it washed and damp but Flickr seems to have eaten it.  Extremely soft but with a bit more character than just plain merino, not to mention the colour.

This is it dyed in basic primary colours:
Merino shetland dyed and damp

I shall have to charge rather more per 100g for this than for the standard fleeces - let's see how it sells.
