I missed Fiber Friday again, so here is a Fiber Sunday to help hold you over until next Friday!  Grin

Undyed hand spun mill ends.




Next, Trevor.  This turned out to be a bulky weight. 

I let my younger cousin Trevor dye some superwash roving, then spun it up and named it after him.

I love the undyed mill ends... I always feel like I have to dye everything, but just the natural fiber looks so beautiful, especially plied with thread to add some texture and character.

Thankies everyone!

You know, working with the natural stuff was surprisingly enjoyable and non-monotonous. I would like to do it again if I can keep some wool out of the dye-pots.
