Yesterday I spent most of the day spinning a small skein of baby camel - It’s a hard life. This will be knitted into a sample for the upcoming Spin Short class at Socktopus.


The fibre is about 1 inch long, and dreamily soft and fuzzy. The spun yarn is uber-squooshable and I think will have to be something soft and cowl-y to cosy around my neck. I thought about dyeing it, but the natural camel colour is quite nice so I think I’ll leave it. I guess my next day of work will involve knitting it up - poor me!

    That looks absolutely perfect. It simply oozes softness and sqishiness and if I could spin something like that, I would never ever shut up about it ;-)

    Oh! That makes me want to try spinning up my camel. It’s not baby but a pretty brown none the less. Have you tried yak?

    That yarn sounds and looks amazing! Good choice leaving it natural, the colour is scrumptious.
