Yarn – Graphite


Long time, no post! Here’s what I’ve been working on:

It’s the first yarn from little Marseille that I’ve ever spun, from her baby fleece.  The color is really hard to capture, but it’s a dark gray, almost black, shot through with shiny light gray strands.

I spun the singles on my sidekick, and plied it all on my drop spindle. I haven’t spent so much time working with my spindle in a while, and I actually gave myself blisters, but it was worth it. This solid, medium weight yarn is no fuss and no frills, but soft soft soft.

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
