Fiber Fridays!

Handspun Mertushma (Llama, tussah silk, and merino wool)!



Gorgeous blend of fiber and color; an ultra dark brown from the llama, blended with the pale blue silk and merino.



Pic of the Raw, unspun here.



From my ultra lovely spinning secret pal Sasha, of course!



From this etsy shop: Lil Bit of Heaven Fibers.

Specs:

Hee, this is what happens when you forget your fiber notebook. Where you wrote all that down. No specs! I'll edit to add them in later!

Around 4 oz, 18 WPI, and a pretty good yardage, 400yds+ as I remember! But yeah, I'll add it in later!

Happy Friday!

The first two photos has a stormy look to it. Who would have thought brown and blue would work so good together.

I love those colors that you scratch your head and go "Is it gray? Or maybe deep purple? Wait! It could be a deep blue gray!"

Very nice!

The first two models are very silvery on my screen. Did I tell you how much I love silvery things? I can see and feel the silk.

Pretty fiber! I'm just going to let you spin all the things I can't (llama, alapca, mohair), and just watch the results.

I would never have thought blue and brown would work, but that is beautiful. It's going to look fantastic knitted up.
