So, not Friday but it's not like these were spun this week either lol. Damn finals >_<

So we have....

Tropical Fish! A one-ply thick and thin handspun yarn. Made from 100% Merino wool. A rainbow of colors are in this yarn but too many to mention! Spun from lovely roving from Theartsateaglesfind.etsy.com
Tropical Fish has approximately 250 yards.
Weight varies from fingering to bulky.

The colors are off which are dissapointing but it at least has the correct colors just wrong shade. I think they're brighter in real life.


And Peach Scone!
Peach Scone is one-ply handspun yarn with alot of texture! Made from merino, gulf coast wool, and mohair in colors of peach and chocolate brown. White and Peach sari silk contributes to even more texture in this yarn!
Peach Scone has appproximately 44 yards.
Weight varies from fingering to bulky, primarily in between.
Not the softest yarn, but eh lol.

Tumeric dyes so well!!!  I have about 8 oz of roving that I dyed with tumeric

I love natural dyeing.  Do you need to mordant the fiber first with tumeric?  What weight ratio do you use for the tumeric?  Thanks.

I put a couple glugs of vinegar in with the tumeric.  I didn't weigh either fiber or tumeric  (that's what a couple glasses of wine will do for you!)

Hi All!

Wow that solar dying is really neat!

I know its now Monday but had the day off and was proud I had the time to spin up a skein.....

Sphagnum:  56 yards handspun handdyed merino wool yarn, plied with olive crochet thread for poofs and strength.  Coils throughout, thick and thin in nature.




Have a great week...back to work tomorrow bleh! Undecided
