I was lucky to get this fiber from somebody's destash. It's From Southern Cross Fiber club fiber May 2010 - Hades - 80 % Polwarth 20% Tencel. I was not a member of the club then. I hope David is doing another two color combo in the future.
I had planned to spin it very thin, and navajo ply each of them for a specific project. While I was spinning along, it occurred to me, that I might not get enough yardage , since each bump was only 2 oz. I asked for some more in the SCF rav group, and I got lucky again. Once the second bag arrived, I changed my mind and 2plied the whole thing.
I love these colors. I've always wanted to use them together in one project. It turned out a nice lace weight yarn, a total of 1172yds.
What I especially love about these yarns is, that they are not total solid colored. There are variations within.
The brown colored skein is 563yds, and the red skein is 609yds. I would have had more yardage overall, if Denny hadn't eaten some from both colors.
I can`t tell you how soft this yarn is, and shiny, thanks to the Tencel. I`m looking forward to knit with it.
I`m going to leave you with this Denny shot, and another story of his. The other day, I watched him licking the door of the crate where Maggie was inside. She was on the crate mat, on top of a baby blanket, chewing a bone. It`s always interesting to watch Denny, so I looked on for what came next.
He licked and licked, until he got his teeth on the baby blanket, which was just inside the crate door, not sticking out at all. As soon as he got a grip on it, he started pulling it, Maggie still chewing away on her bone, and finally he yanked three times, and the baby blanket was outside the crate. Maggie still chewing on her bone, Denny running away with his trophy, tail high, victoriously! In my wildest dreams I would never have guessed that this was possible. He always does things like that.
Wish you all a wonderful weekend!
