Sheared on 26th May 2013, this is a big one weighed 1.6kg after I skirted it. I think this comes from the sheep furthest to the right, the darkest one with the white patch just above its tail.
After it was washed and dried I was left with 800g of black fleece and 215g of the mixed colours. It wasn't worth trying to get white from this mostly coloured fleece.
The mixed colours
I decided to dye this fleece this using Colour Craft All In One dye using two colours, 10g of Jade mixed with 10g of Turquoise. I dyed this in March and finished making the yarn in May.
Combing made the colours combine, like when you add a blob of black paint into a blob of brightly coloured paint and mix it all together. I got 91g of combed top from the original 215g.
The finished yarn is Fingering Weight and is 90g/395m. I've name this Celtic Green.
Just the black to do and that will be another fleece done.
