Wensleydale is such a joy to spin...it just WANTS to be yarn, and it wants to be skinny yarn, and it wants to be some sort of delicious open-work project (because it likes to be fuzzy) or some fabulous mitts on tiny needles (because your hands can take it's wooliness).
Wensleydale are an old-school breed, with very woolly wool (meaning, not super-duper soft), but the texture is wonderful, with a nice bloom or halo, like mohair. The fibers are a very long staple, so while it fuzzes, it will resist pilling up...a nice trade-off for the lack of squishy softness.
This yarn is spun up from one of the colorways in my new Farmhouse Series, Summer.
