Some new yarns for Fall

I haven't been spinning as much as I should due to aches and pains, but I've managed to spin up a few new handspun yarns in perfect Autumn/Fall/Halloween colors!

First, there is more Coral Snake.  This is one of my favorite art yarn colors so it's no surprise that I've spun more.  This time the skeins are a little different - only coral, golden yellow and black yarns spun in so if you've seen previous skeins, there are no deep purple yarns spun in this time.  I have two skeins available at the moment and will have two more listed soon.  You can find Kitty Grrlz Hand Spun FunctionArt Art Yarn - Coral Snake in my etsy shop here!

Second, is what I think is a great Halloween color....I started spinning a bit of this color at Fiber in the Park last week, so when I got home, I spun up the rest of the fiber.  I ended up with a 3 oz skein of about 117 yards of thicker worsted weight Navajo 3ply yarn in awesome shades of orange, green and black.  This is spun from Falkland wool - not as soft as merino, but would still be great for a pair of wristwarmers or maybe a treat bag!  You can find Tricky Tricky HandSpun Navajo 3ply yarn in my etsy shop here.
