I've been carding faster than I can spin lately!

Here's some of the stuff I've worked up recently--

4 ounces of domestic wool

Mint Julep
3.10 oz of Merino/Baby Alpaca
I loooove this one!! Reminds me of mint juleps on a summer day.

Mermaid Kisses
2.2 oz of hand dyed corriedale

Spring Chicken
2 oz of hand dyed corriedale

Garden Summer Salad
3.5 ox Merino / Baby Alpaca
One of my favorites of the bunch. SOOOOOOO Soft!!!!

Wine & Lace
3.7 oz of Superfine Merino and Baby Alpaca
Luxurious, soft, and smooooth as butter

Cloud Nine
4.2 oz hand dyed merino

Soooo lovely! I'm crazy about ribbons and garden summer salad, especially. I agree, these will make beautiful yarn!

In the end, only kindness matters.

Thank you, Belruel and Dragonflywer!

I probably wont spin these up myself. I like to play with fiber more than I like to turn it into projects right now... haha It's a serious problem.

Same!! Mint julep is my favorite too. They are all rolled up here but are so fluffy in person.

I love these! I love the small details, like how you put ribbon around them. I am just learning how to "present" the batts I made, and I love how you describe them.
