I finally finished the lovely fiber that I started, yes, I know, for the Tour De Fleece 2010. Well at least I did finish it.
From Orion, I was drawn to it due to the natural dark color. And so I started to spin, and spin, and spin.
I finally got done, and have a estimated 960 yards from it. Yay! Enough for that sweater I wanted to make out of it.
The decision has been made on what to spin next, and it is…..(drum roll)…..
4 oz of beautiful Screaming Wild Monkeys, from River’s Edge Weaving Studio, this is so super soft and squishy and the colors are amazing! I couldn’t resist. It is a blend of 70% Superwash Merino, 15%Banana, and 15% Seacell, and impregnated with silver.
I was not familiar with Seacell, it is cellulose-based fiber manufactured in the so-called Lyocell process. The seaweed has been permanently incorporated into the fiber.
I’ll let you know how it spins up!--
