I’ve been experimenting with another fiber in my spinning. It is pretty rare; thus far I’ve only gotten my hands on barely over a gram of the stuff. But it is soft and just my favorite color.
The staple is very short – hardly an inch to an inch and a quarter. I spun it from the cloud with very light take up, using a semi-woolen draw similar to what I used for the bison.
The resulting yarn, a 2-ply, was extremely fluffy and haloed. Because this is a double-coated breed, it has some itchiness behind the very soft down, so I’m not sure it would do for a cowl, but perhaps a hat?
Whatever one knit from it, I know it would pair well with jade-colored buttons.
So what are you spinning up these days?
