Awesome stuff this week, as usual! I especially like Neon Hotness and Green Spaghetti Party...so bright and fun! I just have one yarn to share this week, I've been on vacation and haven't spun so much. This is a corespun yarn from some of my handcarded batts.
Includes hand dyed wool, felty bits of merino, and lots of sparkle! Very light and fluffy. I just love corespinning!
Another awesome fiber Friday! I love all the colors that I'm seeing today. Gorgeous!
I was a bad photographer this week, so the three new yarns I spun are still waiting for their pictures! But I do have one yarn that I spun from a Loop Spontaneous Spinning batt photographed. Inachis--supercoil yarn containing yearling mohair, alpaca, merino, corriedale, flax, silk noil, and 100% aluminum Angelina sparkle!
I love Seriously Smitten!! Loop rocks the batts, that's for sure.
I have two to share this week! The first is spun from some of my hand dyed wool, to which I added strips of a vintage Japanese silk scarf. Then I plied it with another single spun from a gorgeous aquamarine bamboo. I call it "Country Kimono."
And this second yarn is from a TerraBellaSpun batt (etsy). I combined it with some hand dyed wool to make big fluffy beehives throughout. I'm planning to make myself a skinny scarf out of this one.
Ohmigosh, I can't pick a favorite this week!! Everything is spectacular...if you put a gun to my head I guess I'd have to say all of Skeffto's singles and Lady of the Swamp. Seriously, this is the best Fiber Friday I can remember!
I have a couple to share. The first is Fluorite--my own hand dyed wool, mixed with some natural oatmeal-colored BFL and some pink bamboo dyed by Folktale Fibers. I think this may be my best single ever! I hadn't spun a regular old single in a while so I guess it was bursting to come out.
And this second one is Dolly (couldn't get Hello, Dolly! songs out of my head after I saw WALL-E!) It's spun from my own hand dyed wool, plus some of a gorgeous Loop mini-batt that contained bamboo, silk noil, sparkle, and sequins. I added some lovely smooth shiny novelty yarn here and there, too.
I played around this week with a couple of new types of spins, in addition to practicing my corespinning (thanks again for that video, Liz!). The corespun yarns still need to be set and shot, but here are the other two yarns I spun this week.
The first is a soft-spun pink wool single (with some white bamboo and sparkle carded in) that I crazy-plied with a thin bamboo single, made from one of Loop's mini-batts. I tried to create little corkscrews and coils with the bamboo ply, to give it some interest.
I spun together raw natural-colored Romney locks, tangles of sari silk, flax, some mysterious blue wool locks, and wrapped it here and there with a novelty thread to create this yarn. I loved spinning this!
Good to see you back, Lufah! Love what you've got this week. Here are three from me!
From left to right...a soft-spun thick n thin yarn spun from batts carded by Abby of Folktale Fibers. Rambouillet, misc. wool, bamboo, ecospun, sari silk. Middle one is a supercoiled yarn spun from "party batts" from TerraBellaSpun on etsy. The third is a single from another of her party batts. The two batts were quite different, but I'm pleased that the two yarns match so well! I plan to use them together.
Here's a set of two novelty skeins that I think go quite well together. I call it the "Marvin the Martian" set...the green, red and black reminds me of him! The red skein has several felted beads spun in.
And here are some batts I carded from my own handdyed wool, with lots of gold angelina.
