So, I thought I would post some handspun yarns today. I was just realizing that I have quite a few that I have not shared.

So, here we go:

These 3 yarns are Ghoul, Banshee, and Zombie. They started with the same blend of natural white alpaca, black alpaca, and neon green wool. Zombie is the single, Ghoul is plied with black metallic thread, and Banshee is plied with glow in the dark thread (although as it turns out, the glowing powers are not as strong as I would like - probably should have used several strands to get the effect I was looking for).

Next up we have two yarns that are eerily similar, though not intentionally.

The first is called Wavecrest, and is an alpaca/silk blend. I bought this fiber during my first trip to Rhinebeck. The second is called Cloudy Skies, and is alpaca blended with some sparkly stuff. Apparently I am very drawn to the color combination of teal and white.
