Here's what I've been spinning at the market the last 3 weeks:
2 weeks ago, ~50 yards, alpaca, bamboo, silk noil plied with Punta

Last week, red: ~80 yards faux cashmere, wool, firestar plied with Punta
blue: ~90 yards Alpaca, Merino, Cashmere, silk, plied with Punta

And this week. 8oz merino, specially ordered for one of the other vendors. ~170 yards.
