Art Yarns



Two recently made art yarns.  The purple made by spinning only Wensleydale locks into the yarn and then plying them to stablise it.  Not that slow a process as the fibre is fairly fast to prepare.
The turquoise a slower job altogether.  Firstly I need some nice long locks in the same colour way that I have some carded batts.  Then I mixed the different colours of the carded wool together and spun one fairly thick yarn which I then navajo plied attaching in  the locks .  The second lot of batts I spun finer with a lot of twist .  I then used this as the core and core spun the 3 ply yarn and tails onto the finer yarn spinning counter clockwise
These are now listed on my Etsy
