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.
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!

It looks like cotton candy – I’d like to see it on one of those paper cones!
Oooh, love the pink fluff! Spinner’s Web is lovely to spin, I’ve done up a few skeins from their stuff. They’ll surely be at Shepherd’s Harvest this year, they’ve been there and at Yarnover every year I can remember (though I don’t know if they were at YO this year). They’re lovely people.
thanks for confirming my fears (of it slipping away) on the merino/tencel. It looks gorgeous though!
and here I was hoping to resist the call of fiber this weekend – but now I’m going to have to search out Spinner’s Web.
thanks for the enabling 😉
the merino-tencel is beautiful. very cool.
Your spinning looks fantastic!
Lovely! Isn’t Fiber Studio the best?!?!
I’m heading to Shepherd’s Harvest tomorrow. See you there?
Very pretty pink fluff!
