This fiber blend is so silky and soft it practically spun itself. Such a delight to work with! The surprising part is the coloration of the yarn after spun. The greens in the fibers weren't my first choice of color, but after it was spun the blend of greens is really gorgeous!
This fiber is gorgeous. I blended it with a bit of light blue merino since I am a beginner and am using a drop spindle. Would order again.
Lovely sheen and wonderful subtle color variations when spun. Somewhat slippery to spin so I had to take my time (which is not a bad thing...). I was worried that the spun yarn would be heavy and ropey, but at fingering weight it feels lighter than expected with wonderful drape. Just bought more so that I can spin enough for a shawl.
Very slippery and a challenge for a beginning spinner, but I learned a lot about control and subtle muscle movements to hold the fiber. And so pretty! I'm wondering if I can spin enough to knit a fine-gauge lace shawl.
