New Draft on the Loom

This is some made to order yarn that I had imported. It is a 50/50 blended yarn using New Zealand merino wool and silk from India. It was blended and handspun in India.
The draft (pattern) that I am using is from the eight century, from the Bavaria area of Germany.

When summer has come to the Texas Hill Country, it’s time to work on your yarn stash. Taking the cones of cotton, I turn them into 8oz hanks each. Then scour and bloom the yarn in hot water with soda ash and soap. Next drip dry and sun bleach outside in the summer sun. Afterwards, I winded the cotton into cakes of yarns.

This is just the start of the stash.
