Ooh, I love seeing that bamboo/merino blend spun two different ways. I really like the thick and thin plied with sewing thread. And that blue and white is awesome. Did you actually get the blue from Sheep Shed, or did you dye it blue?
My yarns are kind of laughable this week, because I was trying out new techniques, so I was more than challenged. I'm not super happy with the results, but it was good to try something new. Even though the yarns aren't the best, I figured I'd post them, sort of a way to document my progress as a spinner.
Here's the first, a horribly overspun attempt at cocoons. The white is Sheep Shed rovings which included some mohair, and the brown is some of the alpaca from a fleece I'm combing. The long staple length made it tricky, but I was very pleased to actually get a few cocoons in there!
This next one is merino with reddish-brown corriedale cocoons. The merino was so crazy slippery it made me mad and I stopped spinning it after barely starting into it, though the the cocoons were much nicer to do with the corriedale than the alpaca.
This last one is my first attempt at corespinning. The lighter color is bamboo, and the honey color is soy silk. I'd never used either fiber before. I think I would have had a very hard time spinning them on their own due to the slipperiness, but corespinning worked OK.
