Ok as promised here are the pics! First up a fabulous handspun alpaca neckwarmer, which just so happened to match my outfit today.
And two skeins of blue faced leicaster wool *which is funny because thats the same stuff I used for one of her skeins* dyed with koolaid, plied with angelina fiber throughout, and navajo plied.

She spun the yarn that she knit into the neckwarmer. I think that answers your question?

*g*  There is an entire subsection of Craftster devoted to just that:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=171.0

Check out the completed projects if you just want to drool over beautiful handspun yarn, and there is a FAQ in discussion and questions that should get you started in your quest to spin.

Good luck! The spinning board is very helpful and supportive. We're also a bunch of enablers...  Wink
