All plyed.

I couldn’t stand it any longer, so I plyed it all up.

Starting at the top left we have 2 balls of a very soft Frazzlebatt (there was some mystery fibre in there, my much-more-clever-at-fibre-identification friend says it might be a blend of alpaca and mohair, whatever it is, it’s super soft!) that have been plyed with one strand of Malabrigo Lace – which is a super soft merino singles yarn, and about the same weight as the singles I had spun, so it worked out nicely.

Below that is a reddish/purple batt that was spun in two chunks – so it got plyed against itself.

Under that we have two balls of a nice and thick three ply yarn from a reddish/purple batt, a purple/blue batt, and a blue/kinda purple batt … it’s a really rich colour all blended together like that, and the yarn has a wonderful smooshy softness. Of course it does – three ply woolen spun yarn? What else would it be but soft!

On the top right we have a purple batt plyed with a purple Malabrigo Lace, and below that a pink batt plyed with some bright pink Texel yarn that I had spun up at the Art in the Garden event. I had just enough to ply with!

Under that we’ve got the mystery blue/gray fibre, all plyed with itself: there was about 175 grams of it all together, so it made quite a bit even plyed against itself.

Last but not least we have a green Frazzlebatt plyed with an orange/brown Frazzlebatt. I think that wants to be mittens, but I’m not sure yet.

I had originally thought I would weave with this yarn, but I am not sure now. I’ll let it sit for awhile, I’m sure it will tell me what it wants to be eventually!
