WOMB Wednesday

What's On My Bobbin?



I've been spinning up a lot of merino/tencel lately, loving the soft and slippery fiber sliding through my fingers. I bought this roving at the Virginia Fall Fiber Festival from the Stony Mountain Fibers booth.

My thought is to ply these shiny almost-black singles with this "Midnight" colorway, also a merino/tencel mix. I found it a few weeks later at Rhinebeck and it is from the Sheep Shed at Mountain View Farm.

Must. Get. Merino. Tencel. Now! Right now!

Well, I probably should finish baking the Thanksgiving bread first...

Still, that is just lovely and will look amazing when plied!

Wow, talk about luster!!! Your grist looks pretty consistent, too. Are you finding the fiber to be free-drafting? --Syl

Oooh.. I think there's going to be a merino-tencel shortage now that we've all seen that gorgeousness.
