Much soft. So fluffiness. Very yarn. Wow.

Ohhh the Merino handspun turned out even nicer than I expected!  Upon drying, it is so soft and squishy and lovely!  

Here are some photos of the entire process:

2 skeins of plied yarn, post-washing.  Can you see how the yarn plumped up and relaxed?  I just love it!!!

So soft!

And next up is this bit of green roving that the Wee Boy dyed on Easter with leftover dye.  I think I might try spinning this plump as well, because I’m so, so happy with my fluffy white Merino, in spite of the thick/thin areas.
