Fruit Loops and Seamist

FIBER: 80% Merino/20% Tussah from Chameleon Colorworks
WPI: varies but averaging about 10-13wpi
YARDAGE: 214 yds.

This is the first semi-decent handspun I've made on my wheel. I don't know the name of the colorway (Janel?) so I've named it "Fruit Loops" since it reminds me of the cereal that I haven't eaten since I was in the single digits. It's still pretty uneven. The second bobbin was much thinner and more consistent and you can really see the difference in the two plies. But these colors are so crazy bright that it just makes me smile.

This is what's on the wheel now:

This is another merino/tussah blend that I bought at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival from Cloverleaf Farms. The colorway is called Seamist and I just love it!
