Welcome to Traditions Fiber Arts
My Ashford products are all new in the box or package, unless specified otherwise.
I am an avid spinner and love exploring different fibers, mixing fibers, spinning novelty yarns and experimenting with natural and other dyes and dying methods.
I often card end of day batts with all the fiber cleaned off my drum carder, and then spin them into end of day yarns. This would have to be a "clean the bobbins" yarn. I will often have a little or a lot of a yarn left on my spinning wheel bobbins and then some of another on top of that. This yarn started out spinning Columbia Ramboullet locks I had hand dyed orange and blue. I spun the yarn from the locks in a fine single so it kept changing from orange to blue. I then plyed this yarn with a hand spun single of bamboo from another bobbin. When I ran out of the bamboo single, I Navajo plyed the rest of the single of the blue and orange Columbia Ramboullet. When I reached the end of that single there was a single of lock spun mohair on the the bobbin and I kept Navajo plying and plyed all of the mohair single as well so the bobbin was naked. Thus this skein has approximately 32 yards of the wool plyed with bamboo and then changes to approximately 16 yards of the same single Navajo plyed and then ends with approximately 10 yards of Navajo plyed white mohair. Definitely a different type skein of yarn.
