Wiki doesn’t have a photo of the California Reds, but here’s the link.
I’ve actually had this batch finished for months, just hanging out on the skeining ball. But the ceiling flooded in our bathroom again, so instead of doing OT I’m at home cleaning and decided to get Freya out again-which means there’s no time like the present to get working on Skadi.
Skadi [ Second Batch, California Red]
yardage: 150 across 3 skeins
dye: n/a, natural
purchase: Etsy-Apple Rose Fibers
Project totals: 393 yards, 10.75 wpi
I am completely unfamiliar with California Red. My feelings are this: it was a dream to spin up. I don’t know how I feel about the fiber once it’s spun. The squishiness of it makes me want to spin it again, but it is flecked with darker hairs that make it look sort of grungy to me. I think it would be a beautiful base yarn for blues or greens though.
I’m looking forward to knitting this batch.
Next batch is mixed left over fiber batts and roving.
