Fiber Arts Friday: Spinning Yummy Suri

I was the chattiest member during the Tour de Fleece and because of that, I was allowed to choose anything from the Etsy Shop of Wonder or a custom batt or a skein of handspun yarn or a pattern.  Anything that my heart desired. :-)


Well, I adore the Wonder Why Gal and she adores Suri Alpaca, so I selected a beautiful blend of 70% grey suri  and 30% white merino.


The lovely pencil roving arrived at the end of August.  I was able to begin spinning it in early September and finished it last weekend.  I think pencil roving is my favorite to spin from.


The final result is 4 ounces and 252 yards.


In other Fiber Arts News: I am working on my first pair of socks, but I will have to share that next time. :-)

I hope you are having a beautiful Fiber Arts Friday and that you spend some time visiting the lovely Fiberistas who have linked in over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder.

The yarn is beautiful! I love everything in Andrea's shop, you are so lucky!

Sorry about the cria, but at least you have another one to look forward to, and a Halloween baby would be fun!
