When I saw this fiber at Rhinebeck, I knew that it had to be hers someday…
Frabjous Fibers Silky Cashmerino (70% superfine merino, 15% cashmere, 15% mulberry silk) in Chocolate Cherry
…and now it will be.
I got about 290 yards of sportweight yarn, with fairly short color repeats. I split the roving the long way into eight or so segments and then did a two ply. The red was really bright on the bobbin, so I’m glad it mixed in nicely with the other colors and toned down a bit.
I haven’t been spinning all that much lately, but I think it still turned out well. I think the weight will be nice for a scarf or something.
My mom can knit, but seldom does (actually, I ruined knitting for her. That’s a story I should tell some day). I told her that she could use it herself if she wanted, or I could make something for her. Either way, I’ll post an update on what the yarn turns into.
Happy birthday Mom!
