As anyone who follows me on social media knows I am now not only a crazy weaver lady, but a crazy spinner lady! All this coupled with medieval re-enactment, a love of history and research means I've begun compiling a broader list of sheep breeds that were available in the Middle Ages. 10 years ago, when I first spun and dyed the yarn for a weaving project (which went so well it resulted in a 10 year hietous from spinning), all the re-enactors I knew were spinning Icelandic wool as the "most" medieval.
