Fiber Arts Friday: More Qiviut Spinning

This last week or so of Qiviut spinning has been blissful.


I was sad to be at the end of my single, but thought it looked so pretty in a cake.


It's now plied.... 1/4 ounce and 25 yards.


I haven't bothered soaking it yet... it's so soft and just the right size for my palm.  All I want to do is hold it and squish it.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday.

I have a skein of qiviut in the stash that I periodically take it out of the bag and give it a nice cuddle. Sometimes it's so hard to decide what to do with really special yarns.

Wish I could pet it :)

How about making an eye mask with it. Wouldn't that be a dream to sleep with!

Now that is a good idea... hmmm.

It looks beautiful, does it have a short staple length? I tried yak this week and struggled to get a decent single because of the sort length

I can feel the squishiness right through the screen.

Soft and pretty. That little hank would be a great movie companion for me...I can't sit in a movie without something in my hands...I have a bad habit that results in my cuticles being destroyed if my hands aren't busy. Nice job on the spinning!
