Hey all! I think it's cause it's been raining a bunch lately, here in Portland, but I've been craving and creating unrestrained color. It's refreshing to throw a ton of bright shades into the carder and just go with it...though wearing garments made from these will take some bravery.

This one's a mix of nylon, mohair, merino, BFL and lincoln locks, all hand-dyed and hand-carded.


The batts and singles, for the above.


And here's a somewhat crazy mix of mohair, merino, BFL and alpaca--in all the colors I like and other people don't, necessarily.


You can, if you wanna, check out some more photos of this yarn over here: http://www.miloknows.com/2013/04/yet-more-bright-as-hell-handspun.html

Those are so fun! I'm happy you are enjoying {and sharing!} your bright colors. Crazy indeed! What are the weights/yardages?

Thanks, all!

These are both quite bulky, though they have thick 'n thin spots throughout. I haven't measured yardage yet, but I'd estimate around 80 to 100 for each one.

The second one is my favourite too. I think those colours are great together.  I'd wear them (although my kids might pretend they didn't know me  Wink )

I love the second yarn, and I always love seeing pics during the carding process.

I really like the third yarn!  Those colors are great!  With the gold and the purpley tones and teal and red!  Beautiful!
