spinning adventures

The spinning wheel is working overtime.  I bought wonderful fibres at the Craftsfair in Rijswijk.  Alet from  Textielwerk wol en zo  sold me 500 grams of mixture:  baby Alpaca, camel and silk.

It needed careful spinning and even more careful twining.  The short fibres broke easily, so I needed to handle it with the utmost care.  The result is as soft as butter.

I'm thinking of knitting a pair of mittens and I got just enough meters to make them.  Thanks to the niddy noddy I could count that easily.

I soaked the skeins in a tiny bit of  eucalan, but that wasn't really necessary.  It couln't get any softer than it already was.

As I was spinning I was constantly reminded of a cup of coffee.... the coffee colours were all there : soft brown, milky white, creamy caramel....

So, my name for these skeins is : the cappuccino collection...
