Crafty Friday 7/15 - Tour de Fleece

Hi! Sorry it's been quiet around here. Our internet had been weird all week. :(

How many of you are spinners? Are you spinning in the Tour de Fleece? For those of you that have no idea what I am talking about....there is a huge group of people world-wide that are all spinning yarn along with the Tour de France. There are several teams to join and probably the most fun of all is just sharing the pictures of all our yarn goodies.

I've been spinning when time allows and have actually managed to complete 2 skeins of yarn and a mini skein. I can't remember the last time I spun 2 skeins in the same week. Yeah!

Yarn #1 is a 2-ply fingering weight yarn. This is superwash merino and was such a delight to spin. I haven't spun a lot of superwash and it was very easy and this yarn is SOFT!! It deserves to be made into something extra special.


Yarn #2 is alpaca straight from the alpacas in our backyard. I carded up a whole bunch of Tudors inspired batts for a spin-a-long we are hosting and this is Henry VIII. It's hard to see, but there are blacks, grays, purples and blues throughout the whole yarn. It's so pretty!
