Baranduin, originally uploaded by Bright Side.

This is 110g/177m of superwash merino, hand dyed by Freyalyn and is another of my Wonderwool Wales purchases. The fibre is named after a river in Middle Earth and it fits the subtle blues, greens and greys beautifully. It was really quick and easy to spin- I spun and plied the whole lot in a day! I was aiming for a medium sportweight as I'd like to make socks with this. I've been experimenting a bit with getting a bit more twist into my yarns to make them look more bouncy and squishy- plus it's hepls to make sock yarns more hardwearing.
