I bought two raw fleeces from Tweedside Jacobs, who have a herd of Jacobs and Gotland sheepies over in Newtown St Boswells (I think, nearby anyway)
Nice people, nice wool.
So this is my first wee test of a fleece-staple pile technique I'm trying out.
I was intrigued at the idea of making a tufted cloak fabric, as is occassionally described in saga and ancient law codes of scandinavia. Apparently they had individual staples of fleece knotted into the cloth.
I also made a wee triangle, but i didn't take a picture of that and it's not exactly well defined anyway, so never mind. I like this technique. I am liking the ideas of Heavyness and Warmth right now. I want to make large, heavy, comforting throws. It's a Good Idea
