More Singles

A full day of spinning results in three full bobbins...11 ounces and almost 800 yards worth of lovely yarn with a slight sheen.

Fiber Content: 50-50 Fine Wool & Soysilk - I purchased the fiber dyed, but then decided to add some additional color to it by overdying prior to spinning. I'm calling it Tropical Sea because it reminds me of the bright yet blue-overtoned colors of a tropical reef.

Specific yardage on each skein will soon be available as I'm planning on listing these at the shop. I'm hoping to have them listed by the beginning of May.

**Whoops. While I did indeed have them listed at the beginning of May, I apparently forgot to activate these beauties in the shop. They are there and active now :) Note: I'm linking to the DK weight skeins, though there is also 1 skein in sport weight also.

Spun especially for a special person's birthday...these colors are her favorites :)
I named it after the children's riddle: what's black and white and "red" all over?

It's a bunch of mixed wools, spun up single ply though it has fantastic barber poling and almost looks plied because I held the colors of roving parallel to one another. Unfortunately, I forgot to grab the yardage and weight - from memory I think it came out to be a light-worsted in thickness and there was plenty of it :D

I have to admit this is one of the few truely finished objects for the year so far, though it certainly isn't for lack of trying!
