I made yarn!

136 grams of it. (60% Alpaca, 40% silk)


You can't really see the subtle variegation in the yarn - there's green, turquoise, periwinkle...the roving changed colour gradually, it looks great when plied.



This is a 4 mm needle - just so you get an idea of the weight.

Cool! I've been able to resist spinning so far because I'm a total klutz, but successes like yours tempt me :)
