North Ronaldsay hand-dyes

Last week I dyed my first batch of locally sourced yarn from North Ronaldsay, Orkney's most northerly island and famous for its seaweed-eating sheep.

It's a 2ply 100% wool in 100g hanks and similar to the 2ply Shetland wool I've dyed in that it's more like a fingering weight/4ply. It has a charming, hairy appearance and an almost lustrous sheen. So far I'm really enjoying working on this base and keen to keep a hank for myself!
