I haven't been posting here much lately and thought I would finally share some of my new yarns.  Let me know what you think!  Smiley


This one is Tulips; 158 yards, 4oz of blue faced leceister from Spunky Eclectic handspun by me.



This one is Sea Treasure; 100 yards and 4oz of an alpaca, merino, silk & glitz blend with recycled sari silk & commercial yarn bits.  Roving was from Loop on Etsy.  A bit overspun, but not yet washed out.




This one is Ocean Dreams; 350 yards and 4 oz.  Handdyed and handspun Falkland wool.



Kaleidoscope; Top skein is 138 yards; 2.2 oz, bottom is 140 yards; 2.8 oz..  This is a Corriedale, Romedale & Romney wool blend with silk noil from Crosspatch Creations, handspun by me.



Surprise; 138 yards and 4 oz.  This is an alpaca, silk and wool blend with lots of glitz from Loop on Etsy.



Spring Fling; This is 314 yards and 4oz of handdyed & handspun 50/50 merino/tencel blend.



Signature; 80 yards and 4oz, super bulky, double plied.  Blue faced leceister from Spunky Eclectic.



Thanks for taking a peek and let me know what you think.  Smiley

Whatever you want really.  I will probably make scaves from a few and the Ocean dreams I may make some slipper socks since I have so much yardage.  I think the Spring Fling would make a great pair of wristlets.  The sky is the limit.  You just have to make sure that their WPI (wraps per inch) and yardage will work for your project.  I still need to find the WPI for most of them.  Just waiting on setting the twist & washing now.
