Happy fiber friday everyone! I've never started the thread before - I keep going to check that it really is friday and no one else posted yet. Here is my yarn for this week:
Merfolk - This skein was spun from velvety soft merino wool that I handpainted in shades of brown, blue, teal, and greens. I spun in lots of fuzzy mohair in olive green, seafoam, and teal, nylon sparkle in deep green and seafoam, recycled sari silk in blue and gold, and teal and gold sequins, all plied together with a metallic gold thread for a textured, puffy-soft yarn. There are little bits of hot pink & red sparkle, mohair, and sari silk spun in for contrast.
Rosaceae - soft, silky, and shiny bamboo, handdyed by me in shades of pink and green (with a hint of yellow).
Whisp - Whisp was spun mostly from an amazing handcarded batt I got in a trade that was made up of soft wools, recycled sari silk, nylon sparkle, angelina, and kid mohair (and probably more). I added in a bunch of extras - 'black diamond' (shiny grey carbonized bamboo) fiber, more nylon sparkle, white angora rabbit fluff, pale blue bamboo, and (best of all) clear plastic from recycled plastic bags. This skein is mostly wool, but there are long sections of the bamboo, angora, and clear plastic.
Changeling - Silvery-blue tencel, with lots of peachy-pink bamboo slubs and teal sequins strung on silver thread, plus a tiny pinch of blue recycled sari silk threads. The tencel is soft & silky, and holds it's shape better than bamboo.
Thanks for looking! I can't wait to see what everyone else has to share!
