Handspun & naturally dyed

Yet another pile of sample dyeing, this was BFL uncarded and the fleece was cleaned, then dyed. The lovely corkscrew curls in the fleece gave me a lovely texture and as the fleece took the dye in different intensities the range of hues is great.
I have not knitted these up into test squares but I think it will knit to approximately aran weight.
I have a pile of welsh mountain so with luck I might get time for more experiments this week end.
