24-1/2th Century ITW TdF 2016

I divided and spun this bump specifically for fingerless mitts. The yarn is chain-plied; the fiber is Falkland wool. Falkland isn’t a breed of sheep, but rather refers to wool that comes from the sheep of the Falkland Islands, primarily Merino and Polwarth. The conditions on the islands are very favorable to the sheep which means the wool does not require a great deal of processing because it stays white.
