Item details

This summer I decided to train up my spinning skills by doing some different color study activities. And since I'm spinning them to learn, instead of spinning them for specific projects, I will be putting them up in the shop.

I pulled out all the stops with this yarn. Soft 19 micron merino - so soft it feels like cotton. From Woolverine Fibers here on Etsy. And I spun it from the fold, so it should be light and lofty.

In some areas, I tried wider bands of unspun color - which made areas that are lengths of one pure color. When they were plied together they produced a barber pole effect in some places, and solids in others. Other sections of unspun wool had narrow bands, which caused the colors to blend together - like how the black and cream blend into grey. All the variations mixed together in endless combinations - producing a tweedy, heathered look. I was trying to produce a yarn with areas of tweed, and areas of higher contrast. I had a lot of fun trying out all these effects together in one yarn, and it's something I would definitely try again.

There is an amazing variety of colors and patterns in this yarn. With so much variety, you'd think this would be loud and crazy, but the colors are soft and gentle, with a rustic feel, and somehow pull it all together. When knit up it produces a piebald effect - kind of like brindling on a dog.

I have two skeins of this yarn, one is 58 yards, and one is 70. So 128 yards total.
