Here are the first two small skeins spun on the Orkney together.
Plyed the polwarth from last night. The Orkney is impressive. The freshly plyed yarn was wound off, twist set, and is outside drying.
Here's the sample skein from yesterday's drum carder fun. It's a blend of Suri alpaca/tussah silk/merino/Angelina...spun (and plyed) on my Spindlewood square drop spindle. The blend spun up fine....came out super soft with a nice sheen and lovely halo. I love the hint of color. It's exactly what I was going for. This mini skein has about 17 yards.
