Alpaca, Mohair, Silk, and Wooly Nylon Yarn

This yarn sold before I could put it here but I want you all to see how pretty it is anyway - and how easy to spin. I spun a slubby and thin single from alpaca Black Knight and added dyed mohair and mauve Tussah silk as I spun. The dyed mohair is from Cheryl at her cherylavenue Etsy shop, and the mauve silk is from Rita's shop Castleman.
Then I just plied it in the opposite direction with black Wooly Nylon serger thread. I think that it is very yummy.

Happy St. Pat's Day
