Happy Fiber Fever Friday Everyone!
I am still spinning the Falkland singles from this week’s WIP Wednesday. I am 3/4 done with the total fiber weight. I should be able to ply finish the yarn just as soon as my wheel’s new bobbins come in…
However, I would like to show you some beautiful fiber I purchased from a Ravelry de-stash:
This is Hobbledehoy’s 50/50 blend of merino and yak. The colorway is called ‘Pineapple’. It is the softest fiber I have ever held and so it naturally holds a place in my core fiber stash.
It serves as an inspiration braid and it will continue to do so until I one day reach the pinnacle of my spinning career and become “good enough” to justify spinning this fiber. 😉
I hear this is a common problem for new spinners — but be assured that I am not skimping out on the good stuff. My lineup of fibers to be spun is a beautiful mixture of rare breed fibers and blends comprised of merino, falklands, wensleydale, and corriedale wools along with alpaca, camel, and silk.
So far it all still fits in a treasure chest, but I think I may exceed those confines today. Time to find a bigger treasure chest!
