I had a small amount of the homespun mentioned in the previous glass bowl post. This is sheep and camel two-ply. I spun this during the Tour de Fleece last summer.
I bought this yarn at a yarn shop in Marion, IA to go with some homespun in my first pair of Mrs. Beeton’s wrist warmers. The home spun was a 2-ply with one ply being a burgundy-dyed sheep’s wool and the second ply being the very first baby camel hair I ever spun. I gave those wrist warmers to my Mom.
