spinny spin spin

A spinning update, since it’s been awhile.

The skeins on the left are merino, in the middle are tussah silk, and on the right, a successful singles yarn.

Silk skeins ready to dye – I think I might do some handpainting with these ones, rather than my usual crockpot.

This one’s a merino singles yarn, which always seems to kick my butt! This actually turned out quite well, though. I think I might weave with it.

And…I finished this lovely skein yesterday:

I had one ounce of Treenway Silks hand-dyed tussah in uh…I think it was “booth bay bop”, or something like that. I spun it up end to end, just predrafting a touch to open out the fibres (it spun up like a dream!) and then did a single of natural tussah, and plied them together. The yarn is super shiny, and the colour progressions on the one ply are pretty subtle. I love it!

I’ve listed a bunch of new skeins on Etsy, and the skeins that were on sale will remain that way. There’s more to come, so check it out!
