The "Camelid Sampler" skein

I had my skeins of camelid sampler out today to show "Dr. Amber" - she was here to make her annual visit to the sheepies and wanted to see some of my yarn.

I took the sampler singles and plied them with a single spun of grey baby alpaca top. Oooh. It is soft!

Then I hand carded some mohair locks that had been dyed in jewel colors and "floofed" them in when I was plying.

I found a scarf pattern in Crochet Today that I think will "biggafy" into a shawl. We'll see how it turns out.

If you click on any of these pictures they will biggafy and you can see more detail in the yarn. Let me know what you think.

GORGEOUS! That skein just oozes softness. What luck to be in the camelid class for your instructor's last time... and what a generous person!

I just love yarns like this. The color is so fascinating to work with. Lovely!
