aah. Dollbaby and Ice were my favorites this week. looovely.
I pretty much love everyone's yarns this week. so much gorgeousness.
here are mine, finally!
didn't get the wheel up and running yet [last part is on it's way, I think, though! yay!] but I couldn't wait any more, so I spun up what I had. I honestly don't know how anyone has a fiber stash..must have more money than I do. I run out of fiber far too often.
this week's three are all natural, yay [I'm in love with natural colors at the moment]:
first we have chocolate baby:
a bit blurry, sorry about that. I was eager to share and missed the sunlight, so these pictures will have to do.
chocolate baby is dark brown llama from a baby llama's first shearing. it's wicked soft and so light! it's a very airy yarn, about sock weight though it varies a bit more than I'd like. haven't set the twist yet, and I'll probably try to get it to felt up just a bit so it's a little stronger...the roving was so airy I'm kind of afraid it will break.
next we have hay and snow:
that's what the colors made me think of, anyway. hay bales covered in snow.
this is light brown baby llama roving plied with some of my natural white that's been laying around begging for something to be done with it. so I used part of it to attempt cabling for the first time, and the rest to ply with this. it's very squishy.
and the last one is mystery grey:
so named because I ordered a wheel part [one of a couple necessary to fix my baby!] and this was thrown in as a freebie. I've no idea what it is but it's lusciously soft and spun up really really evenly and smoothly. I adore it and want more, so I'm going to email and ask!
I would imagine it is merino, but I'm still limited in my fiber experience, so who knows? it feels a bit lighter than merino. ah well, we shall see.
love all the yarns this week and hopefully by next fiber friday I'll have wheel spins to show you guys! I love my little spindle but I'm ready to upgrade.
