The one on the left is mohair, and the one on the right is Blue Face Leicester, a 100% wool. This pic was taken before I balled it up. The pictures don't show it all that well, but the colourways are a variety of lilac and mauve shades with a touch of blue.
This is a close up of the mohair. Doesn't it just make you want to roll around in it? You can click on it to see a bigger version of it.
This is the Blue Face Leicester. The picture doesn't do it justice. The colours, while subtle, are amazing. The full-size version of this picture shows the colours better.
Here they are after I balled them up. The mohair was nearly a nightmare to do. It's going to be interesting once I start on the mitts. It clings to itself like there's no tomorrow. The BFL should make it a lot more managable though. I'm certainly hoping so!
