(Yes, I'm a crappy photographer)  

The colours in the first picture are most accurate.  It's 100% merino, and super soft and squishy.  It's not perfect, there are some thick and thin spots, but I adore it anyway.  Especially the colours.  What do you think?  I might make a hat with it, or I might just keep it as is to squish and admire.

Oh, nonsense! Those pictures are great! I love it! It really does look super fluffy! I love that about plying. And you know, I've been spinning for a year and a half and I'm still pretty thick and thin so don't you worry about that. The texture when it works up is amazing!
