Superwash Merino From SweetGeorgia Yarns

Last April, yes, that's April '08, I ordered some hand-dyed fiber from SweetGeorgia Yarns, located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. SweetGeorgia Yarns is all about color, and more color, and then, add some color. I'm totally amazed each time Felicia, the owner, posts new yarns or fiber in the online shop. The colors explode on the screen. My camera is very old so these photos do not do it justice.


Fiber: Superwash Merino
Colorway: Spring Rain

Anyway, I must admit, I just got around to spinnng it last week. It was just one package that I purchased since I wasn't too up on my spinning. I'm quite pleased how it turned out (now that I've taken a spinning class with the approval of my instructor ;)). And it's of a high quality fiber - after spinning and setting the twist, the yarn has a squishy-springy feel to it. Just how it should be.

Sproingy, squishy merino!! Lovely spinning! The two-ply yarn looks bouncy even on screen.
