From a bargain basement fiber group on Facebook I picked up several ounces of a fiber package called ‘grapes’. The fiber was very soft, included some bunny and bamboo silk, so I had a blast spinning it up. The pre-spun fiber is here:
I am still not very good at spinning locks, so I wound up opening them as much as I could and incorporating them into my finished skeins. I tried to spin it all individually in sequence but wound up carding it all together into punis. I will confess, I still have the bunny fiber off to one side. I really hope to spin it separately or perhaps as an accent for some alpaca.
I plied my 2 bobbins of Grapes with some Tencel I had already spun up to create a neat effect. The unwashed skeins are pictured below:
If they change a lot after washing I will post another picture. For now, these did wind up as just under 150 yards measuring about 12 wpi, putting this at a sport weight yarn (pre-washing). I am very pleased with this product, though I do hope that washing makes it a bit softer.
