More Handspun Yarn
I spin during shows, but never end up with much, so I end up with a collection of smaller bobbins of yarn in pretty colors. This winter I pulled them out and started pairing them up. I love this combination [It looks better in person]. So cheery and fun.
It's a 3 ply yarn. The first single was spun from a hand dyed alpaca batt in turquoise with lots of sparkles. The second was a lime green alpaca batt with lots of sparkles. The third was spun off a hand dyed silk roving in bright colors.
It has a good weight to it because of the alpaca, but it's a sport weight yarn. I'm trying to decide what to do with it. Maybe a cheery shawl?
