My first hand-spun plied skein




44 yards of way overspun yarn plied. I don't think that's looking too bad for my first skein. :)

Yay Christy!

It actually looks a lot like my first hand spun skein. Mine was from a Jacob sheep and the same colors, what wool is that you've used?

BTW mine became a pair of socks that I wore and wore and wore for years....

That skein looks delicious! Very nice work for your first one. It looks so soft and squishy :)
I just washed my pink tipless gloves from your pink dyed wool. Put them in washer and dryer and they came out just gorgeous! the wool washed very well and the color is exactly like before. That's the way I like it!!

Not bad at all, I'd say!

I love that yarn... even (especially) the little snail shells of tightly spun plies. I've been tryin to make snails and can't. Poo. So, whatcha gonna make? Something that shows off it's loveliness, I hope. Maybe a dish or bowl to hold your odds and ends? Yay Christie!!
