Tog and Thel Together


Well, if the merino from yesterday was like handling tissue paper, this unseparated* Icelandic wool was like 30 lb bond.

It sits, untouched, because it came out differently than I intended and came out unsuitable to the purpose I'd picked for it.  These things will happen.  I spun it into strands that are too thin to have any loft or softness.


*Icelandic is dual-coated, so if the tog is not separated from the thel the results are hairy.
