I've spun one of the batts I got last week. Not sure if I'm happy with the color results. I may pull them apart and spin as sections of blue/white/brown.

Wow that cotton yarn is really cool! You really just used regular cotton balls from the grocery store? That's great!

I bring pretties!
The fibre is a super fine merino in 'Sea Beast' colorway- I got it from a fibre club on etsy and the name of the shop escapes me but that's ok the shop is closed now. I spun it up using a technique I read here- tear the roving into long thin strips, spin it up with minimal drafting, dunk in hot and cold water to felt, let it dry, then un twist. I'm so excited with how it turned out!

erm, excuse the spot on the floor.  Roll Eyes
About 150 yards, 4 oz. Mow I need to decide what to make with it!

ack, nursing while typing........

I always look forward to Fiber Fridays!
Gina- I'm dying to see sherbert spun up. Maybe next Friday? Grin

Pmpkn- Welcome to Fiber Fridays. That's a really even third skein.

Lamina- Sea Beast turned out great. What will you make with it?

This Friday I made Stalactite. It's a blue, purple and olive green wool, plied with baby alpaca in knots. It's a teensy skein at 37 yards, but I had a great time making it!
