Two New Handspun Yarns

I'm quite happy with how these came out. The brown is 152 yards, spun from superwash merino, Fiber Optic "Black Coffee" colorway. The red is 109 yards, spun from superwash merino/nylon pencil roving, Fiber Optic cranberry-ish colorway. Each of the colors had a nice variation in hues that when plied together evened out and gave the yarn a lovely depth. It's cable-plied, which means two plies are plied together and another two plies are plied together and those two sets are plied together again. It has a kind of braid look to it if you look up close.



I am thinking of using it myself for a Baby Surprise Jacket!
