Handspun weekend

Baby Llama, merino, tencel handspun This is the yarn I made this weekend. It is a combination of this:

Baby Llama baby llama purchased from A Verb for Keeping Warm at Colors last weekend and

Spindle spun 80 merino 20 tencel 80% merino/20% tencel purchased from Deep Color Studio in December.

I hand spun the merino/tencel and spun the baby llama on my Schacht Matchless. The colors of the merino/tencel are bright and the gray of the llama tones them down so that they are much softer. The yarn is approximately 18 wpi and 262 yards. I'm thinking neckwarmer.
