Just received some lovely fibers I want to share with you spinners out there. So scrumptious! 
The first is a rose color blend by Ashland Bay from Slim Chicken. It is 70% merino (21.5 microns) and 30% tussah silk. I’m spinning it on my drop spindle. This spins like butter, but is really more grey than rose…
Next, I have some beautiful, oh-so-soft oatmeal BFL from Paradise Fibers
This is a full 8 ounces, which I hope will be enough to spin and knit a vest for my husband.  I’ll be spinning this on my wheel, two ply, or possibly 3 ply. I need to do some reading to decide which would be best.
