Back into the Spin

My latest crafty endeavor was some polworth fiber that I decided to spin up. I bought 4 oz of dyed fiber from Into The Whirled while I was at the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck this past year. I dare you to go to their site and not drool over the fibers! The colorway I purchased is called Brandywine and it took all my willpower to hold off on spinning it until after the holiday crafting was finished.

I don't actually have anything in mind for it at the moment. It's heavy worsted or even bulky weight yarn, but it's luscious and beautiful and destined for something warm and soft.

I hadn't spun anything for over a year and this was just the kick-start I needed to get myself back into it. Once I was finished I immediately dove into my fiber stash and found some Merino/Alpaca blend in a nice heather gray color that I bought years ago. I actually have a project in mind for that one. Stay tuned!


  1. Oh, it's gorgeous! I love the colors! I always gravitate towards greens and purples!

  2. I still haven't learned to spin, although I have a wheel in my garage and all that fiber I bought back in 2007!

    1. Ha! Looks like you have everything you need! You should dust it off in some your spare time!
