Pumpkin Patch, on Spindelicious Classic: 100% Corriedale
Autumnal beauty 🍁 Pumpkins and harvest. Green and gold. Smoke and ash. Burnt caramel and apple cider.
A classic handspinners wool! Corriedale is a lovely, go-to medium-fine wool that is a cross of Lincoln and Merino breeds, which means a longer staple length, and (attention new handspinners!) is a breeze to spin. Next to BFL it’s my favorite fiber to learn to spin on, it’s an all-purpose wool and it can be used for all the typical wooly wearing garments: mittens, scarves, sweaters. The finished yarn has a lovely bounce and a slight sheen.
Spinning tip: 👉 Corriedale has a great crimp that lends loft and elasticity to the finished yarn, so spin it a bit finer than you normally would to allow for some bloom and poof.
