This past week I finished the singles...
And turned them into a gorgeous 2-ply yarn.
It's so incredibly soft.
|Basking in the sun, like a cat.*|
But so, so cool.
|The colour is hard to capture. It's a charcoaly grey, much darker than it's showing in the other photos, but not this dark - with bits of brown and red in it.|
(Bonus: the first yarn I spun on my new wheel, using the fibre that came with it. It was kind of an icky reddish brown and really sticky while I spun it. Then I washed it and surprise! A lovely neutral wooly colour, much softer and a bit fluffy. But the first wash water was disgusting. It took four washes and five rinses to get it properly clean!)
* Speaking of cats. When I washed this, Conrad got up on the sink to watch the proceedings, and tried to run away with one of the hanks in his mouth when I wasn't looking.
