Round of Rosey

August 17, 2007 at 5:05 am 1 comment

It’s going to be a spinning update kind of week. I was ecstatic when the Yarn Pirate decided to start dyeing roving. And hey, you can’t go wrong with BFL.

Here is 4oz of the Rosey colorway.

It spun up like a dream at a light worsted weight and it’s so soft and smooshy. I really wish I had gotten more of this colorway.

Here’s a nice juicy close up and maybe it’s a bit closer to the true color:

But you can see that the roving spun up significantly lighter than the yarn in the same colorway.

I still think it’s soft and pretty (although a little more of the apple green bits would have been fun). I have more of her roving in the stash and I’m torn between popping that onto the wheel next or some of the Lori Lawson I got at Black Sheep. Dilemmas…dilemmas…

    oh yummy. I remember doing a sampling of BFL at a spinning guild meeting, and it does poof up soo nicely when you card and spin it. I think I’ll keep my eye out for some at Rhinebeck.
