More Yarn Made of Scraps

This time I went for the purple shades---and a drum carder, which I like using much more than hand cards. The lavender wool on the tray is Targhee. There's some lavender mohair there too. The wine-colored wool is Columbia. Not shown in this photo is the little bits of wine-colored mohair that was carded in.
It was fun to spin up my wild batt.

Love the colors. I e mailed your Blog to my friend, who "grows" her own yarn. That's what I call her flock.

the color is great, love the idea of using up bits of leftovers and making a new yarn.
