It's safe to say the rain has barely let up all winter and we are all in desperate need of some lovely sunshine! Well we find ourselves in luck at Raynbow Punk HQ because a whole week of delicious weather led to some serious outdoor spinning with Jett! I did a dying session a couple of weeks ago (totally forgot to photograph at the time... eek) but I indulged with some core spinning, using recently hand dyed merino fleece.
I spun the fleece around a pink wool core... doesn't Jett look pretty today!
I spun two colourful bobbins of single core spun and then plyed them to make a super chunky art yarn. I adore the effect when I ply core spun, I find the fleece opens up slightly making the colours pop and the yarn softer!
The final art yarn I've now called 'Fields of Lavender' because it reminds me of happy days spent at Norfolk Lavender.
I don't think life gets much better than a day spinning in the sun! I still have a couple more hand dyed fleeces to play around with, next time I want to give halos a go!
That's all for now, fibrey love
