Baby Camel Finished!

Baby Camel plied with Silk

I can’t think of a better way to close out the year with a completed skein that’s been on the spindles for 3 years. Can you? Whew. I’m glad this is finally done. It’s not the best spinning nor plying job I’ve ever done, but I can cross the camel off the list.


  • Fiber: Baby Camel Down Top and Tussah Silk from Earthues, colorway “Cypress Grove”
  • Yardage: 576 yards
  • Weight: 2.25 oz (70 g)
  • WPI: varies GREATLY. Currently, it’s anywhere from 24-28wpi. I haven’t wet finished this yet. I expect it to bloom significantly.

I still have a bit of the silk to spin, but that should be finished up quickly. It will be plied with itself for a 2 ply and likely worked into a silk band.

Have a fabulous New Year!

    Happy New Year!

  2. Gorgeous! What will you make with it?
