teal+purple


The second spin I talked about, completed a few days ago. It's a BFL roving which I've painted. I love to spin this fiber, it is so easy to "fluff up" and pre-draft. I don't know if I was lucky with this particular wool, or if BFL usually is this soft. I've heard someone mentioning it's not as soft as merino. I have som pretty cheap merino, and this is ten times softer than that. It's the only BFL I've ever owned, so I don't know. I think it's a bit more shiny than merino too.

A little about the yarn:
It's a 2-ply Z-twist, about 12-14 WPI. That would make it a a fingering weight? I don't know what to make of this, maybe a hat or a neckwarmer for Elina? Or maybe I'll swap it, it's to sad to stash a lot of yarn I have no idea what to do with. That doesn't mean I don't to it..

For en herlig farge! Er fremdeles helt imponert :-) Og det grønne garnet, nydelig (og jeg som egentlig ikke liker grønt..) Jeg får bare super lyst til å farge garnet mitt når jeg ser alt du får til;-)
Men, hvor i alle dager får du fatt i fargen da?

It is lovely yarn. I just made a Teddy Bear with my own handspun yarn. It's a 2-ply as well mostly 13 WPI. I used 3mm needles, and it worked out very well. Will post about it soon. I only had 170yds of it, and it's always the big question what to do with it. :o)
