Black Shetland handspun

This handspun is from some roving I got from Berghoff Farms. It's black Shetland with purple and turquoise silk in it. Over nine hundred yards of luscious fingering weight from 8 ounces of roving. Now if I can only find the right shawl pattern to do it justice.

The yarn bands are my own creation. Once I figure out how to post downloadable files, I'll post a pdf you can print out to make your own.

Oooooh, aaaaaah!!! I love that yarn! You're right, it needs the perfect shawl pattern, not just any one will do.

Great bands on your yarn skeins, too! I just put little hang tags on mine. Your idea is much more special!
