Churra Bragançana Rose Grey

April 26, 2018

Os meus velos favoritos são provavelmente estes de Churra Bragançana que nem são cinzentos, nem castanhos. Como me ensinaram no Tennessee, são “rose grey”. Finalmente decidi começar a trabalhar com eles. Estas duas meadas são de um saco de lã de segunda qualidade, penteada em Dezembro, que trouxe numa caixa, na mala, para os Estados Unidos. Uma maravilha para fiar, a lã penteada é extremamente fofa e regular. No que toca a preparar Churra, nada chega a um bom par de pentes e a pouca torção na roda.

My favorite wool fleeces are the rose grey colored Churra Bragançanas that I have been hoarding over the years. I finally decided to start working on them. These two skeins are from a 2nd grade bag that I combed in Portugal in December. Packed the combed wool in a box and brought it with me to Michigan. It was a dream to spin, super soft and evenly layered. When it come to Churra, the magic formula for me is a good set of combs and just a little twist on the wheel.
