so i just finished spinning my first yarn with my drop spindle, and i grabbed the fiber sheet. the hand writing is pretty clear, but google tells me nothing.

it came out of an exotic sampler my mom picked up for me a couple years ago. the other yarns i've heard of, but not this.

Its listed as being Ingu or Inga. or Jngu or Jnga. my mom tells me the place she got it closed last year, so i can't call them up.

Its a soft clean snow white, and it spun up fantastically. i really want to know what it is, because i plan on using it to crochet flowers to attach to scarves for my family at christmas, and i thought it would be cool if i could include a little write up on what sort of fiber it was, and include a picture of the animal in question, along with a little 'and this is how i made it' thing.

thanks soo much in advance if anyone has a clue!!

living with an inferno doesn't mean it has to swallow you whole, you just have to know when to feed the flames.

Hi dear,
might this be Ingeo? It's polymer made of plantstarch. Funny if you really got it, indeed exotic. I did not see any till now but in some shops i found they are selling it. It is said to be environment friendly, it is produced of renewable resources.
Ingeo was innovated not to long ago. If your fibersample is older than four or three years it can't be ingeo, am I right?
Hope this could help, but maybe it is something else.

ingeo is actually man made corn fiber.

knitting and spinning and the hilarity that comes along with it:
