Sampling with yarn from Cambrian Mountains Wool Challenge

Cambrian yarn sample

Cambrian yarn sample

I received my yarn on cones, wound it onto hanks and sent it off to Triskelion to be dyed. I kept back a tiny amount, dyed half with some odd blue dye and did this sampling. I made adjustments to the pattern and tried different setts to produce a good upholstery cloth weight.

I then sent a test piece to Mick Sheridan of M.S. Upholstery for his OK. The plan is for him to use the final fabric to upholster a bench, which will be our collaborative piece for the collection.
