It's been too long since I've had a yarn to post!! I spun this up for a dear friend and while I told her she could name it, I got impatient and just chose a name - Common GrackleWink  (More info on my skein naming here.)

It's 80% Huacaya Alpaca and 20% Mulberry Silk, 2 oz, 83 yards, and from Yarn Geek Fibers. It felt like what I would imagine spinning long hair would feel like! Cheesy I liked it a lot but it got all over me. I think it came out beautifully though! Just a simple 2-ply but the fiber is so gorgeous!



Here was the fiber pre-spinning!

Gorgeous! I love the mix of the dark with the cool tones blended it. I bet it knits up beautifully.

Congratulations on being featured in the best of list for 2014!!
