A super fun cowl! This cowl is made from art yarn that I spun using US Grown Merino, Alpaca, Kid Mohair locks, silk, and silver sparkly angelina.
The cowl is 7 inches high and 20 inches long!
My Soft rating: 4/5
This is the process to make this cowl:
Wash Fleece to get rid of Lanolin and Suint( sheep sweat!). Washing requires using extremely hot water and a special soap. It takes 3 washes and 2 rinses to get the fleece nice and clean! You have to be gentle too while washing else felting can occur!
Next I dyed the fibers in shades of green, blue, turquoise, and purple.
I then carded the fiber on my drum carder.
Then I spin the fiber on my Louet s10 spinning wheel.
Lastly I knit the cowl!
I do not use a knitting machine. I use my circular needles!
