I've completed these yarns in the past month or so. Probably past 2 months.  It's been a whorlwind year!  Not much time for spinning or creating, yet I feel like I've done a lot, craft wise. Maybe it's all the travelling in the van.  And getting a lot of knitting done.  Anyway, YARN!

"Bear Poop in the Blueberry Bush" - Core spun corridale with lumps of brown merino.  I'm not sure how I didn't see the poo factor until I pulled it off the bobbin, but ya know... it happens I guess?

Long color runs. So pretty.  Not sure of content, but it's corespun, and sparkly!

take 2, so you can see how the colors will stripe. It's over spun, so I'm considering running back through the wheel to fix that so when knit it doesn't skew.  I thought about plying, but then that woudl muddy the striping I was going for.

This ones all natural. Shetland, Mohair and hemp! super squishy, spun woolen.

And some Neked Yarn!  Shetland, not quite, but almost 250 yards, 8oz.  so it's squishy and thick.  Spun worsted, from a commercial top. So it's true worsted, technically speaking.

Hope you enjoy!

Oh, Kara, they're all lovely. I like the nekkid one. And the long repeats one. And the Bear Poop. And the all natural. In that order, yes. Can I squish them, PLEEEEEASE?

Bear poop -- so funny! Pretty yarn too.  I love the way the cocoons of color work up in a finished object.

I love the nekkid yarn and shetland/mohair/hemp yarns the best.

The purple-turquoise and the blue ones are very pretty. Actually, the others are too, but I like the two first ones best.

I LOVE the firt's one's name!
The purple turquoise is beautiful. I'd so knit a sweater for my daughter with it (and she'd love it so much, because there's purple!)
You're very talented!

Your colored yarns are so pretty, but I have to admit I'm partial to the natural Shetland, Mohair and hemp one!

These are beautiful!  Someday when I grow up or have free time (never gonna happen!) I'm going to spin like this!  They are so pretty!  And soft-looking!  and squishy-looking!  Cheesy
