Tour de Fleece - day 8

To start the second week of the Tour de Fleece, I went white. White to celebrate the fact that Robert Gesink won the white jersey the day before. The mixtures of all types of white fibers - Wensleydale, angora goat, mohair, silk and merino - was twined with white sewing yarn. A total of 150 grams of wool was turned into around 280 meters of the softest yarn possible... What to make from it? I have no idea yet... But I think it might be nice for a warm, woolly winter hat...

Prachtig, al die 'witten' bij elkaar. Een muts lijkt me een prima bestemming!

Oh ja, een prachtige muts (ysolda heeft een aantal juweeltjes ontworpen)

Or a cowl, perhaps? It looks lovely and so soft!
