Fiber Binge: Sosae Caetano

February 21, 2011

Hello Friends and happy Monday!

This week I had the pleasure on binging on some super yummy fiber from the lovely Sosae Caetano. Sosae hosted a Rain forest Spin-a-Long in her Ravelry Group

This is all the fiber she dyed for the SAL!


This was the BFL/Silk roving that Sos sent me. The colors are stunning and so So SO silky soft! I've been thinking and planning on this yarn for a couple of weeks now. I decided to separate the brown from the green in the roving. I carded the brown together into rolags and spun it into a thin worsted single. Then I knit the single right off the bobbin into 5-5" i-cord bits. Then I took the green roving and carded it into rolags while adding mohair, camel down, and BL lamb locks dyed by Hands+Notions. Then I pulled the rolags into roving and core spun them on a DK weight 100% wool yarn. While spinning I added in my knitted bits, auto wrapped hand dyed silk ribbon, as well as merino and BL Locks (also by Hands+Notions) and Mohair.

Here is the finished yarn!






I am really pleased with the outcome of this yarn! It is so soft and silky, but with great weight from the core. I'm not sure what I will knit with it yet...probably something simple to really show off the great add ins. If you have any suggestions for this yarn, I'd love to hear them!

Be well, be positive & feast on fiber!
