Ok so the green was my first spin, the pink is my second. I used merino wool. Hand dyed myself.
I recently purchased a babe drop spindle from etsy. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=41830967
I also ordered some merino roving but haven't gotten it in yet. Good thing the spindle seller slipped me a sample. My 2 year old goddaughter helped me spin up this little skein of yarn. I went thick and thin. It's hard trying to draft when a 2 year old is around asking "Cissy, what you doin'? What you doin'?" The sample is yellow, green and has some sparkly fibers in it. It is supposed to be 100% wool. I set the twist last night and I figured I wanted to felt the yarn...never really seen that before. I have the yarn hanging to dry. Might felt it some more before I actually knit up a little something on it.
