Merino Tencel, Yum

July 30, 2007

I splurged.  Well, it actually wasn’t a big splurge because it was an amazing price.  See, the thing about selling on Etsy, is you constantly see wonderful beautiful things that want to come home with you.  I couldn’t resist.

Could you?

I carefully pre-drafted because I wanted to get as close to lace weight as possible.

Something about this fiber demanded being documented.  I carefully took pictures at each step.  Here my singles are all wound up, and about to be plyed on itself, so none of it is wasted.

I ended up with about 250 yards of fingering/sock weight yarn.  Not quite as thin as I wanted, but the thinnest I’ve spun yet.  I got the fiber at Spincerely Yours.  I’ve been reading Tamara’s blog for awhile.  Go check it out.  Thanks for the wonderful fiber Tamara.

    I love merino/tencel blends! So soft and shiny! I have some in pinks and browns that I eventually want to spin for a stole of some sort. Yours looks beautiful!

    So visit my blog and see what we brought home yesterday. We’ll have to arrange a pup play date.

    Coffee sometime soon?
