I ordered some superwash merino-tencel top to spin sock yarn for my Knittyboard sock swap pal Lesley a little while ago, from www.spinningbunny.com , Susan's Spinning Bunny. The first place I ever ordered fiber from. Lovely fiber, great customer service too!
This is the colorway I picked to spin for Lesley, she asked for something that reminded her of the Four Corners, and this one screamed sunset (in all it's pinks, purples, and oranges) over the junipers on the mesa to me, so this one it is!
In these pictures, it's hard to tell the color variation that is apparent in the finished yarn, these pics scream pink to me. But now I've finished the yarn, it isn't in fact so pink. Its lovely. Lovely! The tencel adds such a shine, the merino a softness and elasticity. This stuff spun like a dream. I can't wait to cast on!
I'll post the yarn tomorrow.
I've been having internet woes, hence not posting for a week, so bear with me!
Everyone who asked about the Telemark yarn, well, I like it. It's more densely spun/plied than the Wool of the Andes, and a little softer to work with, almost smoother in the hand, worsted spun rather than woolen I think.
A good yarn, in fact, I'd definitely buy this before I'd buy Wool of the Andes again!
