A Special Wool Blanket

On the recent Shetland wool warp of browns, I wove my handspun Romney wool from Beaver Valley, east of here. A friend raised the Romney sheep long ago and produced beautiful lustrous, long-fibred roving. I bought the roving after her felting workshop a year ago, ostensibly to felt the stuff, but I preferred to spin it and it was gorgeous to spin.

It made a super blanket that is soft and thick, but not heavy. It measures 195 cm (77") long by 135 cm  (53") wide.
