Night Owl - ombre inspired yarn

I blogged about this fibre a few posts back and now it is all spun up.  I spun the yarn quite finely with a lot of twist as I chain plied it.  You can really see the separate colours in this view.

I produced a decent 235 yard/ 207 m skein, 114g.

And here it is wound into a ball sitting next to another ombre inspired yarn I made during Spinzilla in October. The silk in these yarns really comes through.

Now I'm looking for a project. Thinking about a long shawl/scarf that would show off the colour gradations. What do you think?

  1. A nice long scarf. I found two or three lovely patterns at The Destashification Project ( and scroll down to find them. I plan on making one or two of them but they won't look as pretty as yours will.
