I have decided to treat myself–as a reward for cleaning up my half-started spinning projects–and am spinning the Texas Kid Mohair that I dyed back here . At the time I was not well pleased with how it turned out, as it was not what I had planned. But when I was able to get over and let go of what I had planned, I had to decide that the result really is beautiful. I started spinning this a couple of days ago, and now I have my first skein.
On the wheel:
Left to right: Pre-drafted fiber, fiber in balls ready to pre-draft, and a finished skein.
The colors are so pretty in the pre-drafted lengths.
I am really pleased with the finished yarn. It is so soft and silky. The colors just shine. I would happily buy more of this fiber for dyeing again. I purchased the undyed fiber from /Hippie Chix Fiber on Etsy.
