A fibery prize and handspun yarn!

I've finished spinning 36oz of undyed Falkland fiber. Made it into 3ply yarn a little over 1,500yds. Just a bit more than I will need as a main color for the Kex blanket (by Stephen West). I've got some multicolored yarn for the rest.

Here it is before the dye bath (still in this state, will have to wait for a warm and sunny day),

36oz Falkland, undyed, 3-ply yarn

And I've had a fine mail day today. I've received a little package from Anna Marie of Corgi Hill Farm. There was scrumptious Merino/Angora/Silk fiber (3oz), stitch markers, a fiber sample and an orifice hook. It felt like it was my birthday! Thank you so much, Anna Marie! :o)

The colorway is called "Poinsettia", and is actually a little darker as in the picture.
