Handspun Friday - Hot Feet

Whoosh, and another week has gone by! Can't believe it's Friday again. We also had a Blizzard, which left us with about 20cm fresh snow. We are enjoying it to the fullest.

Today I have to show you Hindsight dyed by David from Southern Cross Fiber. It's not a club fiber, but from one of his shop updates.

Hindsight

This yarn is already in my shop. It's fiber is Polwarth, 3-ply, 3.6oz, 200yds, worsted weight yarn.

Another one is from a couple of SAG fiber flowers, called "Hot Feet", 8oz.

Hot Feet

This is Merino/Tussah Silk blend, plied with silk thread, and quilting thread. Two skeins with a total of 555yds, 8.9oz enough for a shawl. It's the first time I used thread for plying. It was fun to do, but I needed a lot more thread then I thought I would. I'll put it up in my shop for now.

And lastly, a 2-ply yarn, chunky-ish weight, merino, 88yds, 2.3oz. It's soft, and a fun colorway.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
