Landfall

    Landfall by Veronik Avery found in Brooklyn Tweed winter 14   again, I had this tub of pin-drafted roving… it was calling to me “spin this you are going to love it!” however, I also loved the Landfall sweater and this roving would make perfect yarn for that garment… now I could spin 2600 yards but I wanted to wear this sweater before I turned another year older so I boxed it up and sent it back to the mill to be spun into a 2-ply worsted weight super delicious yarn! it’s 80% cvm wool with 20% gorgeous charcoal kid mohair and if you love it too soon there will be a fresh batch back from the mill and for sale on Etsy There...
