Handspun Friday - fiber samples

When you order fiber from Corgi Hill Farms, there's always fiber samples included. I've collected them for some time now.

Corgi Hill Farm fiber samples

I've devided what I had into warm and cold colors. Then one day, I decided to spin the warm samples all together.
There are so many different fiber bases in there. Like this one: it's Merino/Camel/Silk

or this one: Merino/Angora

The yarn came out gorgoues. It's so soft, I want to squish it all day long.

I've got 570 yds, 2-ply yarn out of it.

Don't know what I'll do with it yet, but I think some kind of shawl or cowl for sure.

Fibers included in this yarn:

Merino/Tussah Silk 2x
Shetland 2x
15.5Micron Merino
Merino/Angora 2x

Hallo Monika,

das Garn ist ganz speziell. Und es gefällt mir aus-ge-spro-chen gut. Könnte ich sofort anstricken....

Beautiful! Did you card them together or just spin the samples in sequence? I have a huge basket full of Anna Marie's samples (and more on the way, ahem).
