And batts.  Each is 2 oz.  The blue base is merino, silk, bamboo, angelina, icicle nylon.  And the yellow ones are silk and merino.
I have enough stuff to make 2 more of these blues!!

That's it for me this week.  But I've got a pound of corriedale I've got to spin up rather bulky for a cowl.  I plan to be done it by next friday!

What did you spin (or card or dye) this week?

I love the disparity between the two plies in the yarn. One thick and thin white ply and one even bright colored ply!

The first batts scream Dr. Seuss to me.

yup, I need to change that pic.. it's a really pale lavender... Undecided   But thank you!  I kind of hate that yarn. it's almost to barber pole-ish for me LOL  But I know other's find that attractive, so it's all good!!

Dr. Suess!  yes, it looks like that too!  Someone told me it looked like Sulley from Monsters Inc. Smiley

I also thought the first batt looked like Sully.

Love the yarn Bella and the batts.

I'm with Rodelphia! I just want to eat those blue batts!

I FINALLY have another contribution to make! I got some stress-relief spinning done over the holidays, even in the midst of all the chaos.

Alpaca I spun last July, finally plied and washed! It's sooooo drapey and glossy and OMG it smells so good, that cucumber-melon barnyard smell Cheesy



I'm so proud of the consistency in this yarn! I hadn't spun bulky practically since I started spinning (MUST... SPIN... THINNER!!!!). And it was really different spinning rolags made by someone else.



And lastly, I have finally spun enough for ONE sock out of this fibre. The consistency is ok, and I'm happy with the tightness of the ply, but man, is it dense!
