Handspun Friday - Submerge/Bamboo Forest

Southern Cross Fibre September Fiber Club was Submerge and Jasmine (not featured today).  I've taken Submerge, and an older SCF club colorway (Bamboo Forest) and made a 3-ply yarn with it.

I must admit that Shetland fiber is not my favorite to spin. This had some veggie matter, not too much, and a few nebs to be picked out during spinning. Shetland is also a little prickly next to skin, but I think they will make good socks.
I absolutely LOVE the colorways though, especially the bright, fun green in it.
