Pretty in Pink March 20, 2011

I didn’t intend this yarn to be pink- I used a lot of purple and blue in the dye, but most of what took was pink and sort of a mauve. I’m not normally so into pink, but I have to say, lately it’s been more appealing… especially in a delicate, heathered laceweight.

Corriedale/Romney cross lamb fleece, hand cleaned, combed, dyed, and spun. 686 yards from 2.2 oz,  fine laceweight.

I’m really pleased with how this came out. It’s slightly underspun (on purpose) so it’s light and lofty and I can’t believe how much yardage I got.

I’m not sure what this will end up being, or if it will even be for me (see above- I’m not really that into pink, not sure I could wear it) but it’s sure soft and lovely.

    Beautiful! I love the colors! And that’s a lot of yards! I haven’t managed to spin anything so thin yet 😀

    It isn’t your usual choice in colors, certainly, but it’s quite lovely. I’ll look forward to seeing what you do with it.
