Stormclouds and Raindrops. Here’s my silver streak baby alpaca, 18wpi, spun with Japanese silver glass beads strung on silver thread, 40 yds. and alone in a 2 ply, 200 yds.
I will not tell you how long I spent on those silly 40 yds. ; suffice it to say that I learned a lot about children and what not to do when making a beaded yarn. And I have a very pretty tangled ball of beaded silver thread that should convert easily to a lovely Christmas tree ornament.
This is one of my favorite yarns that I have spun so far. I put far more plying twist in than usual.....The yarn is still soft, and it looks so much more like I think yarn should look. Plus, there is that durability factor.
