Love from North Ronaldsay - first plane in and out at 8 am after yesterday’s’ gale. We await the 14:43 #loganair  #northronaldsay 
Finished the shiny mixed rolags, all wound off into a skein ready for washing. 
I love how it looks, and first impression is that it's softer to touch than both the previous two skeins, even though it clearly has plenty of twist in it! 
I'm very keen to see how it comes up with some dye, as I read somewhere the North Ronaldsay dyes well, but I think the silk probably won't...? And no idea about angora or yak! 
Last photo is a comparison with the 100% North Ronaldsay skein. 
Not sure if I should split these two samples and dye half each, or if that would be too small a sample and I should spin up another of each to keep as the natural colour?

The Populist. Oil on canvas 150cm x 100cm.
A few more tweaks to this one which has been staring at me for a couple of months.

More experiments with the North Ronaldsay wool from @handcrafted_gifts

Spun some straight from the roving and then I've made up a few little rolags blended with white silk/yak (from Handcrafted Gifts), a little of the Sea Sheep Adventure from @ixchelbunny (also featuring North Ronaldsay) and a scattering of throwster silk. 
I love how bright and lustrous these are now.

Planning to dye some with natural dyes at the upcoming EGW&CG workshop as another layer of experimenting.

North Ronaldsay Lighthouse. Built by Alan Stevenson and lit in 1854 it still has the same lenses and gears in use. It was automated in 1998 and these days the lights are run by electricity instead of whale oil.

Bit of an experiment - North Ronaldsay wool, alpaca and some dyed merino for a splash of colour. 
Might play with the colours to see if I can get a 'Cliffs of Hoy' look happening? 🤔
Tried to spin it loosely to keep the fluffy warmness, & apparently it helps reduce prickliness from the double coated North Ronaldsay wool. 
Of course now I have to test that with a much tighter spun sample... 😃

Throwback to yarn shopping Orkney style, North Ronaldsay sheep on the beach and the tiniest airport for the tiniest plane!

Moving house makes you look at all your stuff again and reassess it. Today's handbag survived the cull. I made it around 14 years ago from a mix of North Ronaldsay and Noro. Silk Garden yarns. It's onto its third handle but still going strong.  #feltedknitting #feltedknits #handmade #handknit #rarebreed #northronaldsay
Fresh off the knitting needles! For my friend Aaron, who initially gave me this beautiful yarn after his travels in Scotland! It's been raining a lot here, but I think maybe I can feel the fall starting to creep in 🙃🍂

My first ever attempt at shearing a sheep.  Due to the sand and lack of electric all the sheep on North Ronaldsay are clipped with hand shears.

Fresh off the needles and still to be blocked, but I am chuffed to bits with my new shawl. It was inspired by @_knitbritish #woolexploration and conveniently double-dips with #naturesshades. Its like a woolly map of the UK, with 10 different wools from different breeds of sheep from around the British isles.

#northronaldsay #orkney #ceilidh island party last night
Had a potter around this afternoon. Started off anti clockwise from the lighthouse until the terns started giving me too much grief. Then retraced my steps and headed the other way. 
The weather started to close in and there was a nice heavy shower at the end.

2018 Tour de Fleece Results
Stage 13
North Ronaldsay
My goal for TdF was to set up some samples for my personal Fiber Reference.
It took a little while to figure out the best way to display the samples but I think this layout works. 😊

In search of obscure yarn? North Ronaldsay wool is found on the northernmost Orkney island of Scotland. Only about 100 people live there along with these sheep that evolved to subsist on seaweed. Love the natural colors of this special find! #yarnporn #scottishyarn #northronaldsay #yarn #wool #lys #knittersofig #knitters #knittersofinstagram

Me: "Matthew, you haven't bought me anything for my birthday have you?" Matthew: "No, why?" Noting the package that has just arrived.
Me: "Because you bought me birthday wool." * *slinks off to sip tea and inhale the ultimate sheepyness that is North Ronaldsay wool from A Yarn from North Ronaldsay.

Swipe to see the lovely note about the Post Office and fog - love this! 
Last year I bought yarn from Shilasdair on the Isle of Skye and wool from #birlinnyarncompany
from the Isle of Berneray. I think that I have inadvertently created a 'thing' whereby every birthday means a jumper quantity of yarn from an island somewhere. So far it has all been Scottish but next year I have my eye on some @janistarcroft Nash Island Tide, which comes from Maine.

Finally maybe it to the most Northerly of the Orkney Islands. Definitely worth the 6hrs on a ferry
