I just got done with 2 new art yarns in time for Autumn and Halloween and wanted to share.  I am so happy with how they came out!

Both are made with fiber and add-ins from 7122390Traveling Rhinos's batt clubhttp://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=  Contains BFL, romney and domestic wools with angelina.

Spooky---98 yards plied with copper thread and ribbon and skull beads





Autumn Splendor---64 yards with ribbons, fabric and plastic flowers





I am finally getting this whole "art yarns" thing.  Smiley

I even have 2 more ounces of dyed Corriedale that go along with these ones too.  Going to try for laceweight/fingering with that on my new wheel.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!

Thank you, the thread matches the copper flash angelina in the yarn almost perfectly, that was just good luck.  LOL!

manda, i looooove spooky--those beads rock!  I have yet to try anything arty, but i just ordered the book Spinning Designer Yarns.  everybody makes it look so easy, but i have yet to get up the balls to take that plunge

and i wanted to add:  the pink angelina in the batt i got from you matched PERFECTLY with the holothread i got to ply it with, i was also stunned and pleased to say the least!  sorry, you saying the exact same thing about the copper reminded me.

looks like you've been keeping your new Rose busy!

Thank you so much!  Those beads rock.

Betzi, I am glad that the batts worked out so well, it was hard not keeping those ones for myself.  LOL!  Spinning Designer Yarns is a great book, tons of ideas!
