Montadale Beanie Spinning Knitting Pattern Download
A breed less than a hundred years old, the Montadale produces medium-soft fleece that is exceptionally white in color, making it beautiful to dye. Benjamin Krudwig received some washed fleece as a gift, then began immediately carding the springy wool into beautiful, fluffy rolags. Though the natural white yarn was beautiful, he opted to dye the yarn with turmeric.
