Dandy Lions yarn
I finished up the spinning for my shawl, so I get to move on to something new!
This is colorway "Dandy Lions" in superwash merino from the Spunky Eclectic Fiber of the Month Club. It is spinning up at around 10 wpi though I am having a hard time spinning consistently. Maybe because the merino is so lofty, the slightest change in grist seems to have a big bearing on the diameter of the yarn. My plan is to use this yarn to make something for a new nephew who will be arriving soon. The superwash will be perfect for gifting. This is my first time spinning with superwash, and my first time spinning with merino. The superwash gives almost a papery feeling while I draft, but the finished yarn is pleasant and oh so soft.
