This is made from 20 gage wire, crocheted with fake purl bead.
This is from Adriadica. Suprisingly her coat was dry and did not have the spring of the others. It was the hardest to spin and had a small staple.
This is from the two sisters, Auxesia and Arieadnea. I decided to mix the two coats because Arieadnea’s coat came off like velcro, smooth and even, but Auxesia’s did not. Mixing them together made spinning it good. This one came out the most even.
This is from Ram Stein. His yarn spun the smoothest. It was very springy and had a longer staple than the others.
This is the whole flock in yarn form!
