A little over a year ago I spun yarn for a warm pair of socks for my mother. I had some fiber left over that I had sitting in my "someday I'll get to this" craft box.
I needed something to start spinning this week, so I dug out the softest fiber I could find.
I'd say that a merino/tussah silk blend is pretty darn soft. I'm spinning it as thin as I can with the ultimate plan of making it a lovely 3-ply yarn fit for a cowl. I'm just in love with this color of green too, it is uncommon.
Speaking of lovely greens, want to see what came to me from Finland yesterday?
This gorgeousness is Polworth from indie dyer Lanitium ex Machina. When I found this in my mailbox I was surprised to say the least. First thing I did was text Lisa, my emergency fiber contact, because I had no idea where it came from. Turns out she was the mystery fiber faerie! I had a pretty crappy week last week and she went above and beyond to cheer me up. Thanks again, Lisa!
I hope everyone has a wonderful fiber-filled weekend!
