Some novelty yarns
I spun up some chinchilla angora seconds, and spun them up in a thick n thin single. Then I strung teal, purple and gold beads on a metallic thread, and plied them together. I really like the effect, and the yarn is very soft. There are 118 yards of this.I had some baggies of small amounts of colors hanging around, and had an idea yesterday. This skein is made from 4 colors; chestnut, baby pearl, black, and some dyed brown. I took a small handful of one color and spun it, then a handful of the next color, and repeated until I ran out, making sure not to end with the same color I started with. Then I plied it back on itself, and here is the result. There are 63 yards.
Handsome's last litter, with Joli Blon. REW buck, pearl buck, pearl doe, 2 tort does, 1 tort buck.
Tie the skein in 4 different places so that it does not get tangled during the dyeing and rinsing process. Be sure to leave it loose so...

Teton and Santee's 6 pearls are nearly 6 weeks old now, and so very cute!
