New Handspun and Millspun

I worked on taking some pictures and adding some new yarns to the shop. today  First up is Tropical Waters.  This gorgeous Caribbean blue yarn was kettle dyed.  This is actually a mega skein – 4.5oz/129g and over 500 yards!  That’s 50 yards more than the average skein!  That could make a big shawl or numerous pairs of socks/gloves!  Makes me want to steal away for a beach vacation somewhere with white sand and bright blue water!

This next yarn is handspun from a braid of 100% 19 micron merino that I dyed a while back called Dreamberry.  It was just begging to be spun, so I went for it.  It’s neat to see the before and after.

Dreamberry – before being spun

This yarn is a 2 ply worsted weight, 4.2oz and 186 yards.  The 19 micron merino is so soft and squishy.  This would look great as a cowl or a scarf.  I love all the pinks, purples, blues and hints of white.
