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!
Lovely spinning! The last one is especially gorgeous. I hope you are feeling better.
Oh, wow! So beautiful, all of it!

They all look yummy. I am particularly in love with the silk. :) Keep up the good work.
Gorgeous! I hope you are feeling better.
Wonderful spinning! Isn’t it fun?
These are just beautiful – especially the merino singles. I can’t wait to see what you weave with it…
