really pretty. I love the little pink silk cocoons. And yes, it is great that people are starting to understand art yarn. I always spin with the intention that someone will knit, crochet, weave or whatever with my yarn but I have had people buy it just to look at it for itself and that is a wonderful thing too!

both use and pure aesthetic appreciation are good. as a crocheter and knitter myself i love to use the stuff. but i also sometimes get paralyzed by the beauty of some skeins in the raw state. i also get paralyzed as a spinner sometimes by the beauty of the fiber in its raw state. there woudl be nothing i could do to increase the beauty.

Wow. If I had this yarn, I'd never want to let it out of my sight, it's so pretty.

Do you have any plans for it, besides leaving it in convenient places where it will get stared at?

It sold and shipped it off. I know the buyer so I know it went to a loving home.

I have some yarn though that I can't bear to make into anything because the yarn itself is such a wonderful thing.

I know the feeling. I've had fabric hanging where I can see it for years before I find something that's the appropriate use for it. I actually have a piece right now that just looks prettier draped over whatever's convenient than it would as a garmet. I have a dream of either buying, or putting together a floor loom so I can make the fabric I see in my mind, but just can't find.

that's how i started spinning yarn.
i am horrible with fabric and being afraid to mess it up by cutting and sewing. and not without reason as i don't really know what i am doing when it comes to sewing. but i have inherited gobs of gorgeous vintage fabric that i just have to start making into stuff someday.

i'd love to see your fantasy fabrics.

This is amazing. Whay aren't more people paying attention to this? O_o
It doesn't even have to be turned into any actual garment beyond this. The yarn itself is art.
