Blending yarn

We are all working from home because of government regulations , which we welcome , and the need to keep ourselves safe. It means we have more time because we are gradually going into full lockdown. Worrying times, but also a time to sort and think in a creative, productive manner. Sonya is leading the way on that andย  has worked out how to get the right amount of yarn we need when services and shops are shutting and we need to stay at home.

She found a big ball of merino tops in her stash. So, internet hive mind , is that Bendigo or First Editions tops? Sonya could not remember. She also found some nice yarn from past op shop visits. The red is wool and the fawn is part synthetic and part mohair. She has been spinning the tops and then plying with the balls of commercial yarn. This way she has an original yarn and enough to make a jumper.
