I'm quite delighted with this yarn. I split the fiber for a fractal yarn -- I split it in half lengthwise and then split one of the halves in half again -- so it should stripe a bit when knit up. This will eventually be come a hat or mittens for Rainbow for next year; she can get away with the bright colors at her age.
If I could keep spinning things this fast, I'd make a pretty big dent in my spinning stash. I may have to start doing that soon, because a big box arrived on Friday from Crown Mountain Farms with my last (sob!) order. I had enough trouble deciding between colors that I ended up ordering them all in 4 oz. amounts. Are you ready for picture overload? Here we go.
Superwash merino in San Francisco Nights:
and Material Girl:
Polwarth in Black Sun:
and Hymne An Die Nacht:
And finally BFL in Buttercup Yellow:
I'd really like to start spinning all of these right away, but I feel like I should save them and savor them because they're the last I'll ever get.
