I made my first corespun yarn!! go me!!

Its hand washed raw Border Leicester locks hand dyed with food coloring wrapped around a boucle core.

I brushed out the cut side of the lock but left the curly tip to add texture. You can see the pics of the freshly dyed locks on fiber friday July 15th

And Now The Yarn!!

I dub thee,

pardon the cruddy phone pics cant find the cord for the camera

And a close up:

I could only fit 34 yrds on my bobbin but I still have ALOT of locks left so I'll be making Mer-Locks for at least another month.

Holy wow @ LaughingLark - I think you outspun us all this week!!!! Do you like Neauveau's videos? I really want to learn those styles but I'm having a hard time ponying up that amount of money for a little vid even though I know the knowledge is worth it.

I have watched what I can find off youtube, but I just cant get a good feel for corespinning. Does anyone have any suggestions for a website, video or book?

7  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Dye wont take on: July 08, 2011 03:57:35 PM
Ive been dyeing for only a month or two now and I decided to try dyeing some locks instead of just roving. I normaly do stove top or microwave dyeing with food coloring and koolaid and I did everything Ive always done in dying and the blue just wont take! I nuked it for over 8 mins nothing happened, simmered it for at least 10, nothing happened. What is going on!!

I started into the world of dyeing my own fiber!

I started off with some lemon-lime koolaid and some raspberry ice. They came out very pale but I like them. The singles were very bright and colorful but the plyed yarn was muted and subtle. I tried Najavo plying for the first time on these singles and I am fairly proud of the evenness(even though its a little over spun.
