That Suri Yarn


I finished this skein of suri yarn, adding 120 yards to my spin meter for the year!

Check out my spin meter (over on the right side column) ~ over 400 yards already :)

 A closer look:

Thanks Eliz :)

Linda,
It was different to spin. The suri is more slippery, for lack of a better word. And there was a learning curve to it. Now that I've done a few skeins of suri, I do like spinning it. I have heard that suri has less memory (due to not having crimp) and that it's best to be made into products that drape - shawls and such.
