Spinapalooza

Posted on: April 20, 2010

I have been busy spinning & enabling. I have been selling & swapping a good bit of handspun to continue to fuel my fiber obsession. In exchange, I am getting loads of yummy fiber including this handplucked angora bunny:

Here are some of my recent spins. First off, the Funky Carolina March fiber I posted about last, in the merino/bamboo/silk blend. It was such a luscious little spin that I traded with a fellow Rav member to get 2 more braids of it. 

Then I spun this Pigeonroof Fiber Studios MCN blend up for a fellow Rav member. I was shooting for a DK weight, but it fluffed so much that it wpi’d out at a worsted weight. Fortunately she still like it.

"Cherry BonBon" 230 yards worsted 2 ply

I finally spun up the “Spun Honey” MCN that I dyed a while back. It went to another Rav member (who I am actively trying to turn into a spinner herself!)

This is some JulieSpins superwash merino in her Jungle colorway.  It spins up beautifully!
