Blending two types of fiber into hand spun yarn has been on my spinning bucket list for a while. I hate to admit that this yarn was started months ago. It has been waiting patiently on my wheel. The last few days, however, I got the wheel turning again and finished my first blended skein.
For the base fiber, I used some solid white Jacob roving from our sheep. To that, I added little bits of alpaca from our two guys, Simon & Garfunkel. Simon's fiber is silky silver and Garfunkel's is buttery beige.
One single was solid white while the other was the blend. I didn't want the two colors to twist together when I plied the yarn. That's why I did it that way.
I really like how it turned out ~
Heathered creamy white
flecked with natural colors of gray and beige
and all from the animals in our pasture.
Now to figure out what to crochet with it.
He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes.
