FO Friday – Some New Spins

Spinning is something I really love doing. I don’t always get to do it as often as I would like but I’ve made myself a promise for 2023 that I will allow myself more time to sit down at my wheels and spindles. That said, I have two new finished spins to share with you!

First up is some fibre from Melly Knits. As you might have noticed, I’m a really big fan of Melly’s fibres. She uses a lot of local-to-her or low mileage wool and rescues wool that would be tossed or burned and turns it into magnificent spinning batts. This blend is 40% BC burn pile (rescued fleece), 25% merino, 20% baby llama, 10% East Friesian, and 5% rose fibre.

I’ve spun this up as a two ply using long draw and the finished yarn is light, lofts, bouncy, and so soft. I’m very happy with the finished yarn!

My second finished skein is some dreamy Club fibre from 2019 by Hello Yarn. 2019 was the year that she took inspiration for her incredible colorways from birds. This colorway is called “Snowcap” and is named after a specific type of hummingbird. I urge you to Google them be a they are unbelievably cute!

She paired the colorway with one of my favourite fibres ….. Kent Romney lambswool. It is silky and slightly crisp (think Corriedale-ish) and delight to spin. Mine, of course, is a two ply fractal to show off all those cheerful colors.

What about you? Have you made yourself any crafty promises this year? Are you keeping them? I’d love to hear!
