I've been dyeing to find the time...waiting for a nice drying day.....

........they are gorgeous - at least I think so.  So much so that I had to spin some up straight away!  There is no doubt in mind that Tasmanian Superfine Merino fibre is just THE best. 

Also been batt-ing with my Strauch Madd Batt'r.  This one is blended SF merino with angelina fibre,  nylon glitz, recycled sari silk thread and a bit of hand dyed border leicester fleece. 

Spun it semi-worsted at about a 10 ply. 9 wpi.  About 200 grams there.  Had fun making it and I think it will make a great cowl or shrug.  Will be on the shelf at The Lucky Ewe on opening day next week.
