Blue/Green Merino Top

A quick peek at what I've been spinning lately.

This is merino top (color "blue/green") being spun up as a 2 ply fingering weight. I purchased the top from Sun Bench Fibres.

As yet there is no planned project for this yarn. Total weight, 250gm.

that looks very similar to a top a friend bought me last summer. now, it has more purple than that. i had thought to ply it with some grey, but yours looks pretty good plied against itself, so maybe i'll just do that? although, i've only got about 5 ounces, at least plying it with another color would give me more to work with. waddaya think? (i posted a pic oh so long ago, lol, lemme look and i can tell you which post)

I considered plying it with grey too Minnie. What stopped me was the fact that I have already spun up and plyed the only grey I had.

If your wool is from the same company you might be able to get more. I believe the stuff Sunbench Fibres sells comes from Louet. It is factory dyed, so not much variance between packages. I was considering getting more myself.

looks nice! isn't it funny how the different colours blend when you spin it and itturns into a more muted mix of colours. Love it!

i don't know what company it came from, lol, a friend bought it for me in minneapolis, and she couldn't even remember what store it was, lol! i still don't know what i'm going to do with it. i'm not worried about plying it with something else,i've done that before (the first plying i ever did was with merino in one ply and ramboulliet (sp?) in the other, lol). i just want it to be pretty! i've been eyeing my wool works catalog, and may go online and see what's available out there (look out ebay!)

How Lovely your spinning is. I can't imagine my spinnings being as lovely as things I see on this blog or others, of course I've spun all of five yards altogether on my wheel.
