Junk yarn

Well, not exactly 'junk' yarn but this is an 88 yard hank of seconds I have clipped from Sweatpea, my black English Angora.  She is from lesser quality stock than the rest of my herd of rabbits but she produces the most lovely colored fiber.  It is a real pain in the butt to maintain on her but the efforts are well worth it after it is spun up.  She has always been quite a cranky rabbit so I really have to work for it!

It's novelty yarn Maureen. People pay big bucks for it. LOL

Oh of course, why didn't I think of that! It sounds a lot better than JUNK!

The newest name for this kind of yarn is "Art Yarn", doesn't it sound even better?
