So today I made this totally lush yarn.
I guess that accident isn’t totally correct. This yarn was made with the remainder of the leftover fibers that I had from Janel Laidman’s spinning class at Knit Nation. There is (I think) some alpaca and silk, Merino and silk, BLF and silk, and BFL or Merino and Tencel in this yarn. I had 3 bobbins with these leftovers, one with the alpaca, one with the Tencel and one with the Merino and BFL. I then did a straight 3 ply of all the singles together. The Tencel adds some serious shine while the alpaca adds a little bit of halo. I really can’t wait to see if this blooms some more after I wash it.
To say that this is a seriously lush yarn would be an understatement. I need to play like this more often as most of the time I think of the fibers that get as sort of individual yarns even though combining them gets me much more interesting yarns as well as more yardage on a single bobbin.
