Textural Icelandic Yarn

One of my goals for this residency was to spin and weave something textural that still had its integrity as yarn, but appeared closer to sheep's actual fleece rather than something super industrial.  I finally discovered how to spin exactly what I had in mind for my weavings.  It is really fun and challenging to spin directly from the fleece too.  I can't wait to finish it, set it, and start weaving!
