How's this colorway?
I took the natural Alpaca Silk Wool that I posted about below
and dyed it. I wanted to achieve earthy tones.
I think it turned out pretty well.
There's 466 yds of 2-ply fingering weight here.

This skein below is White Buffalo wool plied with Corriedale wool.
It's 208 yds of sport/worsted weight.
I'm definitely going to dye this once I get another few skeins spun up.
But what colour should I make it? Hmmm...
