last yarns spun in 2018

The left skein is made from fibres named milky way and silky oats. Both spun and 2 plyed together. I popped a pic of Milky Way on here two posts back..

Silky oats is a bfl & tussah silk blend.

This skein is more of a grey colouring compared to my far right skein which was made with fibres milky way and camelot

That skein has more brown in it because there is more baby camel fibres in it.

Camelot fibre consisted of baby alpaca, baby camel, super fine merino and tussahsilk..both skeins are so soft.

oh and piggy in the middle of my photo is a mish mash skein of assorted coloured fibre singles I 2plyed๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy New Year – see you in 2019!

Milky Way & Silk Oats

Last night I plyed up this natural coloured wool free combed top named “milky way”..its a luxury blend of Baby Camel, Suri Alpaca, Soy Fibre, Milk Protein and Black Diamond..

I plyed it with a braid of BFL & Tussah Silk named Silk Oats, both fibres were from catandsparrowfibres.

I’ll reskein the dried yarn & put a pic on here tomorrow.

I’ve got at least 100g of Milky Way singles left on my bobbin so tonight I’m spinning another natural coloured fibre named Camelot.

It consist of super fine merino, baby alpaca, baby camel and tussah silk. I’ll ply these two and post pics soon xx

Sunday spinning

I went and visited my friend Kathy at her art studio yesterday. I’ve been so busy and so has she so we haven’t seen each other in a few months so we had plenty of gossip to share! ๐Ÿ˜‰…

So while I was there I managed to get most of the rolags from my last post spun and I added some assorted blue finnx fleece to the bobbin as well. I’m going to ply it with some other fibres that I’m spinning tonight.

Hello 2018!

Happy New Year!.. I’ve made quite a few resolutions to myself for this year and one of them is to do a blog post everyday.

These are the merino and tussah silk and merino silky rose fibre single bobbins that I plyed today. I never ended up plying them on Christmas Eve so today I wanted to get this yarn done so I can now start a new spin for 2018.

Christmas Eve 2017

Last night while doing some spinning I popped on the movie Moana. It was the first time I’d seen it as I bought the DVD a few days ago. ๐Ÿ’š Loved it!

….. and I loved the way the colours in these merino/ tussah silk and merino / silky rose fibres spun up too. 

I’ll ply them both later tonight after dinner.
