Still Spinning...

Last year at Black Sheep Gathering I purchased these great fiber samplers from Tactile, and decided I'd better spin some before this year's event. I ended up not making it to this year's event, but enjoyed the fibers anyway.

Baby Camel - 2 ply is soft, smooshy and slightly elastic, did I imagine crimp in that roving?

50/50 Baby Camel and Silk, soft and drapey

50/50 Baby Camel and Merino, soft and light (and out of focus)

Fine Alpaca

Suri Alpaca, cool and drapey.

Black Baby Llama, softer than I expected

And the silk hankies (or are they caps) I picked up too;

and made into this;

I worked on more of this;  (shetland, of course)

 And I'm just starting a so soft 50/50 blend of yak and silk from Redfish Dyeworks.
