Handspun Sock Yarn

Well I took the plunge and started and finshed a pair of socks using my handspun yarn(see previous post), using the MUMTUS (MASH-UP MAGIC TOE-UP SOCKS) formula, so far my favourite sock pattern,( might change a couple of things). I used a seeded rib for the upper foot and leg.

From Fluff To Yarn

This is one of my batts that I created,
It is a blend of natural Champagne merino, hand dyed merino, hand  dyed mohair, natural fawn alpaca, hand dyed silk, cotton, bamboo and soy.

Here it is as a single.
Finally here it is plied.

I am hoping there will be enough for a pair of socks.

What Has come of The Spinning Wheel Lately

These yarns are blends of merino, mohair, silk, alpaca, soy, bamboo and even some cotton thrown in.

I also dyed and carded these fibres
