Turquoise handspun yarn

I have this other type of wool that I bought for my felting stash because it was soo pretty and I figured that I'd use it for something. Well, it struck me the other day that I could probably spin it up without carding it, as I think it's already been done? You know, I'm still new at all this so if your following along and don't know either, then you get to learn with me-lol :D

It seems to me that if I were to card this wool, it would probably break. With that being said, I thought...why not? It ended up spinning very nicely and gave me this beautiful turquoise! I'm in love!!


  1. so very beautiful rose!
    it is lovely to hear about this new passion of yours, and i love that you are using a drop spindle!

  2. What a beautiful color. I really would love to learn spinning but it would be way too much right now. Hopefully soon though...
