current projects

I'm such a fiber geek. I'm just showing off some of the lovely yarns I've been spinning up. The light brown stuff in the bag is baby alpaca and, while quite unclean, is the softest fiber I've ever spun. It just takes serious fussing to get all the vegetable matte out of it (grass-type stuff). This also shows pictures of some beautiful colored yarns. I bought some dyed roving (50% wool/50% mohair) and spun it up. Then I plied it with undyed merino to produce a marled yarn. It is just delightful. I love spinning.
