A Superwash Merino Spin


Superwash Merino Spinning for YarnRemember the fiber we dyed in your kitchen, Carli? I’ve finally got it on my spindle and it’s bringing bright and happy vibes to these dreary wintery days we’re experiencing here. I’m so tired of wind and rain! I’ve had spinning for socks on my brain for awhile now and dare I say it? This could possibly be the yarn that works for that. It’s spinning up super thin so I’ll be able to navajo ply it for strength and it may still come out to be a heavy fingering or sport weight.

Keep your fingers crossed!

    This is going to be interesting to follow along with you.
    Hope you keep us posted on this spinning and plying project.
    We’re finally getting some rain here [with accompanying thunder and lightening] We need the rain, an inch so far this morning.

      Hehehe! Sounds like a dye day is just the ticket! We had so much fun playing with the colors on our dye day in Carli’s kitchen. I raised my eyebrows at this particular color combo, but it turned out to be one of my favorites! That’s the fun thing about dyeing…the surprises!

    So funny mom because I have the other superwash merino that we dyed currently spinning on my spindle! I’ll have to take a picture for you tomorrow. It’s slow going but it’s going to be so pretty when it’s done!
