Adding some sparkle
I decided to treat myself to a prepared roving and bought 2 oz of pin drafted roving at the CT Sheep, Wool and Fiber Festival a few weeks ago. The Coopworth, Shetland, Silk, Angora blend has a little Angelina in it, too. So the yarn has a sparkle to it. I couldn't get an accurate photograph, the sparkles must be camera shy. A close up sort of shows the little flecks of Angelina. Adding color and sparkle was a fun change of pace from my usual spinning. There is dog hair in this yarn, too. But not on purpose, so it isn't fair to call it chiengora. Dog hair gets into everything around here, planned or not.
