Posted on Wed, 02/06/2013 - 18:52 Handspun and handwoven I love this blanket. The Coopworth and mohair yarn give it just the right drape, weight, and silky feel. The white wool is from a Coopworth fleece I had processed, and the blue/green are a blended roving of longwool and 3% mohair. I spun the yarn on an older Ashford Traditional wheel (not the drop spindle in the photo, although I make a lot of yarn on those too). I've been handspinning yarn for knitting for 20 years, and this blanket is my first try at weaving my own yarn. It was a joy to work with, and gives me a sense of true creativity I wasn't getting from commercial yarns.
