190 yards Merino/silk/alpaca ~

Whew!  This yarn did turn out to be beautiful, once plyed.  Just another way to say, "Orange can fix everything!"

Dark Dark Dark ~

Yikes, this is "so not my color" as it is very very dark.  The fiber had many colors blended of bronze, red, cream, black, brown and gold, yet spins dark.  Very soft and easy to spin....just dark! I hope the plying brightens up the final yarn!  This is also a merino/silk/alpaca from Taylor Fibers from Fiber Fusion.

Midnight at the Oasis!

(...sing your camel to bed) This is what I named my camel fiber from 2015 Dye Day, in honor of this song because how many songs do we know that mention camels?  Love this fiber!

Plying Otter Pop Lilly!

Lilly turned out to be 300 yards of lovely yarn, with a bit of a halo. I would guess this is DK or sport weight yarn and I love the colors that my daughter made from otter pop dying.  I am wondering what to knit with Lilly's yarn!  Lilly is a Leicester from Mary Beth's farm in the upper peninsula of Michigan.

Sunday Spinning!

This otter pop dyed Leicester is tough to spin as it is a bit matted from its travels from Michigan plus the excitement of being dyed by otter pops, yet the colors look lovely and the singles seem to have a bit of a halo. Looking forward to seeing what the plyed yarn looks like!

189 yards Meriboo!

Wheeeeeee!  I love this yarn!  The colors are so beautiful and the yarn is squishy and soft.  What can I knit with 189 yards? I love it!

Plying Meriboo!

Certainly more of a worsted weight yarn is coming out of this plying. I do love how the colors are playing together.  Wondering what to knit with this yarn!
