And a bamboo corespun:

And a merino 2 ply, sport weight. 8 oz.

Okay I think that is it for now.. I do have a fail yarn, and some more dyed stuff drying, but I forgot pics of those.  But I'll be taking pics again later, as it's -18'C out there, and I can only handle so much picture taking at that temp Wink   Tongue

Wow, Bella, that's a lot! I love the first one! The Squishy merino singles makes me want to do singles again. I can only ever get nice singles on my spindle though. ? Ooh, but I want to squish it and love it.

Here's my contribution:

It's some kind of wool that Chrissews sent me in a personal swap. I was going for a sock weight yarn but I don't think I achieved it.

Thanks Jexx, I don't usually do singles anymore either, but it was a refreshing change!
Yeah, I'd say it doesn't look sockish, but it sure looks squishy!  I love the pretty purple in it.

Wow, volomortuus, that first one is so gorgeous. Well, all the yarn in this thread is gorgeous, but rainbowssss Cheesy

Y'all make me feel so amateurish.

Volumortis, As long as your orders are for hand-spun then custom orders count for this thread! I agree with a_a in that I love that first one! I'll be cliche here and tell you I want to squish it.

A_a I am loving those thick and thin singles. What kind of fiber is it? It looks very squishy too.

When I arrived home from work yesterday I had a new spindle and some fiber waiting so I played around last night and did this; it's wrapped around a toilet paper core.  My FIRST Spin...I'm so lovin' this!




Another pic:

Thanks for the compliments Smiley

What kind of fiber is it? It looks very squishy too.

Whatever sort of wool was in the bag of black & white mill end rovings I got from the Sheep Shed Studio a couple years ago. It's super soft and smushy, I love it.
