Yarn spun and dyed!

I finally finished spinning up my yarn this weekend. It was from a 1 lb. fleece of 50%bluefaced leicester/50% leicester longwool and it is so soft. I have a total of 856 yds which I dyed with onion skins. It turned out the most beautiful shade of burnt orange. The luna moth shawl from is what I plan to use it for. I'm excited about this as I've spun a lot of handspun in 2 years, but have not used any of it.;)

It came out just beautiful and the pattern that you've chosen is going to be perfect!

Very, very nice color. Makes me think of fall.
