Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin Spice started off as several handfuls of soft, rainbow coloured squishiness,

which I spun on two bobbins like this

and the result is :
Pumpkin Spice 80%merino and 20%silk, 300 yards, 10wpi.
A little luxury to slide through your fingers and on to the knitting needles.

You captured the fibre so beautifully, I feel like touching and spinning a wee bit of it myself.
Thanks so much for stopping and saying hi to me at the market yesterday. It always makes the markets worthwhile connecting with other crafters.

I am full of admiration for anyone who can turn a cloud of colourful fluff into beautiful useable yarn. I had a couple of spinning lessons and decided it would be quicker to go to the wool shop.

Nice colours, love it. Is this for sell in your shop? is it enough for a baby cardigan? Let me know, :-).
