Thanks, Nikschaf and Zombie_Queen! I'm not sure, but I think it would make nice doll hair or a small ami...a very fuzzy ami.  Grin

'Rose garden' is beautiful, Nikschaf. The color combo is really fresh-looking - very nice!

Fancyarbor - LOVE! It's soooo pretty! It reminds me, geek that I am, of the way proteins look in their tertiary structure - all twisted up and wrapped around themselves.

Zombie_Queen - What a beautiful colorway! I love the way the plies complement each other throughout, and your plying skills  Shocked ... awesome.  Smiley I bet your yarn is a dream to work with.

Beautiful yarns this week everyone!
volomortuus- i particularly like the soft colors and squishy look texture of the first yarn.

inez - i've had similar fibers before that can be kind of weird to spin, but i love the result!

nikschaf - great colorway, i always like seeing the progression from fiber to yarn.

fancyarbor - the colors of the recycled sari silk look amazing, what a fun yarn.

Zombie_Queen - love the colors of this one, it's gorgeous!

I have a few new yarns to share myself.


I call this one Stormy.  It's wool of unknown origin that I dyed and then plied with black metallic thread.


And this one is Into the Deep.  Alpaca with a little bit of sparkle from Alpaca Obsession.

I actually have some things to contribute this week!!! I just need to take some pictures tonight and get them posted!! I finally finished spinning a merino fibre and mohair locks combo that was a PITA! The merino was felted a bit so it really took some tugging to get it drafted!

Woah, I am so impressed with all the yarns this week~

Inez:  I think that yarn will really bloom once you set the twist.  i love the colors of it.

Niks: wonderful yarn and perfect name (now I'll be singing that in my head the rest of the night .... thanks for that!)

Farbor: I just can't wrap my head around core-spun yarns.  I saw a video earlier this week about corespinning at the same time as spinning the core.  Now that I can get my head around!  Regardless, I love the color and 'fun-ness' of your yarn.

Zombie: 560 yards of 2-ply???  My gosh, what size bobbin do you have to load that much fiber on!?!?!?!  That will have to be my next acquisition.  The best I've been able to do has been about 250 yards sock weight.  That was spinning on my Kromski Sonata and plying on my Ashford Jumbo for a sock weight yarn.  I can get about 250 yards plied on one Jumbo bobbin and another 100 yard plied with a second bobbin.  560 yards of continuous 2-play is boggling my mind!!!  What do you have to ply on.  Other than that, the colorwork of your yarn is outstanding!

Now on to page 2 of FF 04/01/11

Inle, I love the black/blue of the first yarn. Into the Deep is gorgeous!  I hope you post what it is made into.  I can't see the sparkle as it sets, but can just imagine it setting off the yarn in a project!

I will write more when the April fools crap is gone. I can't reply to these icons. Just being on Craftster today makes me nervous and anxiety ridden.

Thanks! Boy did it ever! The sections that were mostly wool got very fluffy.  Cheesy

Inle - Great colorways!

Jexxican - I love the stripes of white through the tweed-y browns and grays. Your yarn looks so soft!

Angry Hippie - Fabulous (as always)! I'm not usually drawn to pastels, but your colorways are eye candy!  Smiley
