Helloooo, Craftsters! This is a substantial portion of all the yarn I've spun since late January this year. I haven't had a chance to take pictures before this because it's been absolutely miserable outside. It finally warmed up and got sunny, so I took the opportunity to snap some pics!



Blue Moon, 229 yds. total, overdyed blue superwash



Blue Moon--plied, 83 yds., overdyed blue superwash



Blue Moon--plied, 146 yds., overdyed blue superwash



Heartache in Disguise, 125 yds., mohair, merino, mill ends, lace, ribbon, acrylic, plastic, a little bit of everything

So beautiful!  What do you mean when you say your singles are "fulled"?

Basically, it's a more accurate way of saying they're "felted". I ran them under some really hot water, then under really cold a few times until the fibers were shocked, then I smacked it against a wall a few times. It sort of locks all the fibers together, so even though it's underspun, it's really strong. It feels more spongy than yarny.

Hi!! Was just lurking about. Love, love, love your yarns!! They are absolutely scrumptious. Captain Peachfuzz reminds me of cotton candy. All your yarns are gorgeous!

i'm pretty sure i love them all, but i want to frame that first picture of "wonderful world." absolutely lovely. also, i like the use of song titles in naming them! i think if i ever get addicted to spinning, i'll name mine after books. Wink
