In the meantime, entertain yourself by taking the Which Ewe Are You? quiz. I'm Finn!
What does this mean?
"Their larger fiber diameter make these wools slightly stronger than finewools yet still comfortably wearable. They like to be used in durable everyday sweaters as well as mittens, mitts, hats, socks, and the like." --Clara Parkes, The Knitter's Book of Wool
Finns resilient nature makes them practical and straight-forward, a quality these mediumwools balance with curiosity and a zest for life. Fastidious in personal appearance and reliable, Finns stay true to their flock and make loyal friends.
I'm not sure if that last paragraph is about actual Finnsheep or people who align with Finns. What do you think?
I bought some Finn/mohair roving at MDSW last month, specifically to spin sock yarn. Maybe I really am a Finn!
