Spun

I did some marathon spinning last night to get some little batches of fiber spun up. Above is 1 ounce of bamboo dyed by Dawning Dreams (received this in a swap). It's 2-ply, 46 yards, heavy fingering/sport weight.

38 yards Navajo-plied sport weight alpaca. Had the singles on a bobbin for about 6 years.

58 yards 2-ply fingering weight angora. This was terrible prepared and hell to spin. Soooo many second cuts. It was a gifted fiber so I guess I can't really complain, but I threw out the remaining 2.2 ounces or so I had left.

This is the one I love most and the one I have the least of. Only 15 yards, alpaca/silk blend, light fingering 2-ply. Gorgeous!
