Spinning a Purple Cloud

On Sunday, I started spinning a fiber I have fallen in love with. It's from Fibers4Ewe Mill in Putnam, CT. Liz, the owner simply calls it Mill Ends. I call it Purple Clouds. It spins with very little drafting and wants to be a fine laceweight yarn. The sparkle is the perfect touch in the fiber. There is a halo in it as well. I'm not sure what the fiber mix is. Just a bit of this and that. I'll let the pictures speak for the fiber. So far, I managed to spin 2 ounces between Sunday afternoon and Monday afternoon, using my Minstrel wheel. Pictures of the plyed yarn will be posted when I've finished the other 4 ounces.

oooo - that looks really pretty. I bet it will turn out to be a lacey shawl :-)
