Koi Pond

Allspunup Spinalong
it turns out that i'm on a bit of a spinning kick after all. This is the Allspunup summer spinalong fiber from 2010. you may have surmised that 2010 was a long time ago. sadly, i'm sure that i have even older fiber still in the stash.

i split the top into 4 lengthwise for a short striping sequence. i spun longdraw from the fold and chain-plied for a worsted weight yarn. i got 186yds out of the 4oz. i lightly fulled the yarn to finish.

i love how this yarn really looks like a koi pond, with mostly blues and a hint of orange. polwarth makes such a bouncy yarn. it's definitely one of my favorites.

  1. It really does! I love it. Long ago, I made a fun hat out of a handspun I purchased on etsy. The colors were simiar, but it was lacking the more vibrant blue, and had more orange. Still nice, but I really love yours!
