TdF Day #5

Today was all Merino, all the time. Yesterday I started spinning up this braid of 21.5 micron hand-dyed Merino that I bought on Etsy from OnTheRound.

This is my first time spinning pure Merino, and let me tell you, it is absolutely wonderful to spin. The yarn practically  drafts itself. I just couldn’t stop spinning it.

So today I finished spinning the bobbin I started yesterday and spun a second bobbin.

Then I started on the third and final bobbin and got more than halfway done.

Bobbin 3 is more than halfway done.

I love, love, love all these shades of blue. And I love, love, love spinning Merino.

      • Spinning with silk is like spinning with hair (although I haven’t actually done that!). What I mean is that it looks and feels like hair and it has such a wonderful sheen.
