Yesterday I finished plying and wet-finishing 390 yards of woollen-spun two-ply yarn. I love it with so much love. It’s springy and lofty and just gorgeous.
The pictures show two pretty tightly packed skeins of yarn, so it isn’t exactly displayed to its best advantage. But you’ll get an idea, anyhow.
This was the SpinKnit&Life’s Luscious Ditty batts in the Baby Silks colourway, “a 7 ounce luxury blend of Merino, Tussah Silk, Alpaca and Blue Faced Leicester Wool. Blue with muted splashes of pink, purple, mint green. Loaded with Tussah Silk for extra softness.”
Here, I used the other camera on loan to us for a macro picture of the sample skein so you get a better sense of the loft:
The second photo is closer to the actual colour.
