Black Pillar Spunky Eclectic TdF 2016

This was probably my favorite spin of the entire Tour de Fleece. The fiber is Po-Mo-Silk, a blend of Polwarth sheepswool, mohair (which comes from goats), and silk. It is incredibly soft and had a beautiful luster that you cannot see in the picture, and it drafted like butter. I divided the bump into narrow strips, spun them end to end, then chain-plied the singles. I’m happy to say that I have another bump of this fiber waiting to be spun. FWIW, the picture does not even come within a million miles of doing this yarn justice.
