As I said in the last post, I was super-excited to meet a fellow spinner at the Ladyfest craft fair – Kristyn from Pleasurecraft.

I made my big purchase of the day at her booth – braids of her hand-dyed wool mohair blend spinning fiber.

I had never spun a blended spinning fiber before and am enjoying it as I spin some samples of this beautiful stuff with my drop spindle.

I have heard that mohair blends are good for sock yarns, does anyone have thoughts or experiences with this?

I love this wool and am looking forward to experimenting with it.
