In Between spinning the quiviut (which I'm still spinning...it just takes a long time to get perfect!) I spun this:
I like to call it Sparkle Llama. 70% llama/alpaca, 15% Shetland wool, and 15% firestar nylon (for the sparkle!).
Oh, and all these smaller pics...go ahead and click them for bigger pics on Flickr!
I bought about 5 oz of this from Camp Verde Llamas at the Pagosa Springs Fiber Festival. Really a nice seller, if you're interested in her fiber, I can get you that info.
There will be two skeins when I'm done, I still need to ply and skein the second. This skein is 64g, the second will be 80g.
Easy to spin, well prepared roving, the first time I've spun a camelid-wool blend, and I really like it! The Shetland gives a nice bounce and elasticity to the final yarn that it wouldn't otherwise have.
This last pic was taken inside and if you click for a bigger detail, you can see the sparkles better here!
