Recent Work

Some of this week's work.
    Pure Wensleydale yarn made from the long staple wool and then hand dyed.  I made 400gms of this.
 Some Wensleydale locks that I have named 'Storm Clouds'.  These are hand dyed using food dye and  the dye set in the microwave using the new steamer I got yesterday.  I think that I will dye more in this colour way and then spin them up myself when my new spinning wheel arrives.  I think that it will make a lovely art yarn.   My new wheel is on its way from the US and I am really excited as it will spin any thickness of yarn
   Lastly my soaps these I felt using  a coarser fiber that is not really suitable to make into yarn as it is not soft enough
