Angel Hair and Baby's Breath





I'm having a lot of fun remixing old yarns with new handspun.

I plied a handspun wool single with vintage "Opalesce" yarn from Reynolds (45% Viscose/ 21% Wool/ 15% Acrylic/ 12% Mohair). The result is lofty, silky, fluffy, shiny...

As long as my house is a foster home for abandoned yarns, I'm going to find them new lives.

ooohhh.. this yarn looks good enough to eat! I have a bagful of vintage yarn I should send you to re-spin for me! IT is just sitting there like a lump of whatever and I don't know what to do with it mostly... its original state is sort of ghastly, if you know what I mean... Love you!
