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.
I love, love, love all these shades of blue. And I love, love, love spinning Merino.
Merino is my favourite so far, too. Silk comes a close second. Those colours blue are wonderful.
I haven’t tried silk alone, yet, but it sure is nice to spin blended with BFL and Polwarth. I’ve had my eye on some silk hankies.
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.
Gorgeous blues! Can’t wait to see it plied.
Thanks, Janet. I will probably ply it tomorrow.
That is mesmerizing. Very pretty!
Q – Quite lovely! Wow!
