For the first time, not only did I signed up for the Tour de Fleece, I am actually spinning! I've really enjoyed all the beautiful yarn pictures being posted this week in the Wonder Why Alpaca Ravelry group, pop over and check out all the inspiring spinning going on!
Rather than re-post photos of all the yarn I've already spun, I thought I'd share what I've been whipping up for upcoming spins. The photo (which really doesn't do the fiber justice) above shows a pretty golden blend of Suri Alpaca from Princess (light fawn, my fav!) this gorgeous fiber came from Melissa over at Needle and Wheel Designs. this was the first time I've worked with raw Suri fleece, processing it from start to finish. I really enjoy getting to know a new type of fiber. Along with Princesses fiber, I included Finn Sheep, Coopworth, Bamboo and Silk top, all dyed in shades of gold, oh yeah, I had to sprinkle in some gold Angelina too, you know how I love sparkle!
This is also Suri from Needle and Wheel Designs, John Cash's scrumptious jet black fiber was blended with Silk Top, Mohair and Coopworth all dyed in shades of silver and of course I added black and silver holo angelina.
I'm getting ready for a little tail spinning using my favorite shades of green and blue green. Fun, fun!
And last but definitely not least Is the gorgeous rose colored Suri/Merino fiber I bought from Wonder Why Gal! I've already spun this, I couldn't wait...it's pink! I blended Andrea's lovely fiber with some of my favorites all dyed in shades of pink. It took a while to spin, because I wanted to do a nice lace weight single, and because I didn't have nearly the time I would have liked to spend with my wheel.
I'm really excited to get spinning on these blends, really excited! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Blessings Friends!
