Saturday Spinning

A little Saturday yarn pØrn for you....



Project Specs:
Fiber: "Victorian Lace" Merino/Angora/Silk (40/40/20) from The Woolen Rabbit
Stats: 4oz, 675 yards 2ply, 15WPI, fingersport weight
Wheel: Kromski Minstrel
Notes: As always, a pleasure to spin Kim's fiber. I'm thinking shawl for this, perhaps an Icarus, as I think it is simple enough to accentuate the halo of the angora without being overwhelmed by it.

Oh, that is beautiful! It will most certainly make a pretty Icarus shawl. Also, I'm blaming you for posting that link and twisting my arm to order some of that fiber ;)

That's lovely, and while I don't know enough about it to appreciate the spinning, the color is gorgeous.

Like Theresa, I don't really know enough about spinning, but it does amaze me that bloggers I "know" are about to create yarn as lovely as that beautiful stuff.
