Quick spinning update

I’m impressed with how much I’ve stuck with the spinning so far this year. I’m really feeling like I’m getting it down now and can spin a decent and usable yarn. The latest?

Merino/tencel blend from The Fiber Studio.

Merino/Tencel 50/50

I found this a bit tougher to spin. It drafted so smoothly that I’d lose it every now and then, or end up with a clump here or there. But boy is it soft and lovely! I think I’d prefer a 75/25 blend rather than a 50/50.

My latest obsession is the pink fluff. I was putting this one off as I thought it would be hard to spin, being nothing but a big bag of fluff and all but no, it is pure heaven to work with. I need more of this and I really hope the vendor is at Shepherd’s Harvest again this year.

I wish you could see the colors better…pink with purples, whites, orange and a bit of sparkle. Icelandic, alpaca, mohair, tussah silk. Lovely….you can’t beat Spinner’s Web. Sorry, no link!
