In which a great mystery is revealed

They're at it again.

I came home from classes a little bit earlier than normal today, and look what I found!

I suppose I must normally miss the bulk of their work day, and I think I surprised them some. Still, the forman (the gent up top there) was kind of enough to give me tip of the cap (nobody does that anymore).

Well, I will certainly admit that I have always wondered how the flecks of colour got into tweedy yarn. I assumed that it was all part of the milling process somewhere, but now I know better!

You know what just occurred to me? These folks might be related to the Nac Mac Feegles... Maybe I should go set out some thimbles of the good stuff...
