2/17nm Merino Lambswool

One of my favourite yarns to weave with is 2/17nm lambswool, woven on a set of 15epi. Initially I wasn’t terribly impressed when my first few cones arrived. It breaks easily and feels quite rough to the touch which isn’t what I want when making scarves, shawls and cowls. However, when woven the washing and fulling process work a form of magic – a hot soap and water wash removes the spinning oils and transforms the fabric into the most luxurious soft fabric which never ceases to delight.
