BFL Socks

My first socks made from my own handspun BFL. 2 ply. Dyed after plying. 
These were fun to do as the colours emerged. They are nice & cushy. 


This was an interesting project to spin & knit. The dark brown is a short stapled Rambouillet & the creamy white is a much longer stapled British Milk Sheep. Spun semi woollen and the colour lengths were entirely random - whatever I felt like spinning at that moment. 2ply. 12 wpi. 
The cuffs, bottom band & neckband were spun from Shetland Alpaca blend.
