After a long hiatus from my wheel, I was inspired to get back to it by this:

The Painted Sheep alpaca/merino/silk fiber in Dublin Lake

It’s alpaca/merino/silk fiber in Dublin Lake from Kris, The Painted Sheep. Absolutely yummylicious fiber, and beautiful colors! It was wonderful and very easy to spin.  I managed to get the whole 4oz of singles on the bobbin.

I wound it into a center-pull ball.

And here it is as a 2-ply. I was lazy and didn’t measure the wpi, but it is worsted-ish.

Up close. I love how the colors blended together.

2-ply

I got about 110 yards. I think it would make a nice scarf.
