Testing out the new possible yarns, part 1

Over the long weekend, I dyed up the test skeins I'd ordered from the potential new suppliers.  I'll be sharing them in the next few posts.

Since I dyed these skeins the same color, I decided to group them into one post.

These colors came out lighter than I wanted, but that's on me, not the yarn.

On the left is a 4 ply worsted weight 85% Merino 15% Alpaca blend.

It took the color well. It's pretty soft and squishy.

It does have random long hairs in it from the Alpaca.

Which is something I've noticed on other Alpaca yarns.  This yarn is hand wash only.
