While at Colonial Williamsburg, I bought some yarn!
The tag on the yarn says "Wool Yarn Dyed by hand in the Eighteenth Century Manner using Cochineal and Madder by the staff of the Historic Trades Weave Room." The wool is from Hog Island and Leicester Longwool sheep raised in Colonial Williamsburg manner.
These are the options I had from which to choose.
I snapped this photo of the lambs while on a quick walk knitSB and I took.
These are baby sweater on the hoof. :)
I was told each skein is approximately 170 yards. That means I have approximately 1,190 yards. I think a few of the skeins are a bit (a lot) less than 170 yards. I will proceed carefully.
What will I do with the yarn? I don't know yet.
