handspun

handspun fiber love

I broke out my spindle from the closet this past weekend and tried to refresh my novice spinning techniques. The result, a small skein of hundspun merino and silk yarn.

It’s only about 10 metres of yarn, and I’m still practicing so there’s a few more tightly wound strands in the mix. But I love the cotton candy pink colour and the softness of merino and silk blend.

What do you think?
Do you spin? Any tips for a beginner?
