I did learn though that getting the wool company to blend your wool colours for you is an excellent idea. I'd spent many a back breaking hour, hand carding my 2 colours together the first time, so when I ordered the next 500 grams I paid the extra £3 to have them blended before hand.
So, if you're interested, this is what 500 grams of blended wool tops looks like. When you order a blend from World of Wool you get the choice of having your blend go through between 1 and 5 blending cycles. I opted for 4, but in retrospect, I think 3 would have been closer to my original yarn. No matter, this yarn will make up the reverse of the cushion.
The knitting pictured will make up the cushion fronts with a button seam fastening.
And here is my yarn, all spun up. It's about 400 grams of 5plies of singles. I have to say, I'd forgotten the joy of spinning from recently blended tops. No carding, meant that I managed to spin it up within a few days.
Off to give it a wash now...
