For a few days I had a little pile of fluff sitting next to the wheel and it did look indeed like a dead skunk. Well, at least from a distance. From close by it was just the perfectly managable amount for about a half hour of spinning for a tired mama on a late evening.

And that's just what I did.

Now, I am so curious, if you, my dear and faithful readers, are up to a challenge and want to give me a good guess on what fibers I have spun here into a lovely laceweight skunk yarn! Leave me a comment!

And here a sneak peak of the other project, here to be seen in the very first promising stages, and here in the very final stage:

Maybe I'll be done by tomorrow?


  1. Hello Dag,
    What a lovely blog you have! You have some beautiful work yourself! Thank-you for visiting my blog and adding it to your blog roll. I will add you to mine also. I loved seeing the mountains in your photos. Your part of the country is so inspirational. A lot different than here in WI. I look forward to seeing more of your creations! Cathy G

  2. I like that soft gray and white yarn. I have something very similar that I am making a cowl with. Mine is very fine and soft but I have no idea what it is.

  3. OK, I'm goin' with mohair for the white skunk and alpaca for the charcoal skunk. I really have no clue...but I know what you like to spin!

  4. Oh that's funny! I have some "skunk" roving really does look like a skunk! Mine is corriedale/ramboulet....yours looks "hairier than mine though so I'm guessing there's some mohair in it. Your spinning is beautiful! Did you spin up that pink as well?
