To save you all some bandwidth, I made photo collages Smiley  You're welcome!
So, what we have here is a collection of dyed tops, and a few batts.  I did dye all the fibre with a mix of Ashford, Dharma, Jacquard and Also dyes... I'm definitely not picky!
All the balls of top are corriedale wool, and the batts are either polwarth or corriedale as a base with a bit of silk thrown in for fun.





Spinzilla is this week, so I'm planning to spin as much of this as humanly possible in the next 7 days!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

yes!! I was thinking the same thing! So pretty!!


Bella, I'm sorry if this sounds strange or if you've answered it before/posted pictures, but do you also spin your own yarn? I'm only asking because 1) these are gorgeous and I'd hate to not own them for something lol and 2) I've had a spinning bug in my ear for a while now and wondered how you got started  Cheesy

Thanks Ladies!


Audania1 - I do spin!  I spin a lot actually, and Craftster is the reason I started.... No word of a lie, I saw a picture of yarn here, then found out it was yarn they MADE! I was floored..  And down the rabbit hole I went!

I bought a spindle the first chance I could, then serendipity intervened and I got a wheel.  It was all history from there!  I used videos on youtube to start with, eventually made it to a free to come fibre gathering, and got some pro tips, and then it snowballed into a Master Spinner Certificate.
