That’s Some Fine-Lookin’ Fibre…

A few weeks ago I was having coffee with the lovely Terri from A Fine Fish Yarns. And from her bag of gloriously-coloured yarns she pulled a braid of equally fabulous-looking fibre! (Cue squeals.)

Wanna see?

It’s a blend of merino and nylon. Of course I graciously offered to test spin. (Or maybe she just gave up trying to get it back off me, who knows?)

It didn’t turn out anything like I had imagined it would, which made it a really valuable spinning experience! The bold splashes of colour on the fibre blended and melted into the spun singles, mellowing them out.

Plying it resulted in a lovely muted rainbow of shades – a far cry from its bright originations. Regardless, I’ve fallen in love with the end product, and I’m already planning its project.

What do you think it should be?
