Spun from gorgeous heather gray alpaca, charcoal, magenta, and boysenberry corriedale, and a little bit of angelina. The skein is 2-ply - it was plied with a metallic silver embroidery thread to add some sparkle and to really make the colors pop. The silver shimmer is subtle, yet stunning! Smiley

This yarn is very bulky in some spots and pretty thin in others, and it is incredibly soft and bouncy.

Measures approximately 82 yards. Average WPI = 7

Each skein of my yarn is very unique and completely one of a kind. I only spin on a drop spindle, so a lot of time and love go into each skein!

i love that yarn! it's so gorgeous, and i like that i'm thrown in there too! (my name is angelina) i made a scarf using those colors, but it was just acrylic so it doesn't look half as good as that yarn does!

omg.  i saw this yarn and started drooling, then saw that it was indeed a LOOP batt that I had been eyeballing.  As a new spinner, I had been lusting after her stuff but deemed myself not yet worthy- until I saw this amazing yarn.  And I caved.  I hope i can make mine as pretty as yours!

Oh that does look yummy. I love the deep purple and the little bit of sparkle. It looks like it would make a scrumptious scarf - I would love to have that cuddled up against my neck.
