Here is my latest spinning.
It’s a merino and silk blend batt from Wingham Wool. Each year they come down to
and bring with them a huge lorry of
fibre, hire a community hall and set up shop. I walk around dribbling at all
the lush fibre! I’m sure they stop at a lot of other venues on their return
journey - always worth checking out their website. Cornwall
It is a large batt and will take me some time to spin! But after spinning the first bobbin I couldn’t help that it might be a little bland and need a bit of spicing up. So, I added a bit of this…
and it looks like this…
I need to ply the two bobbins together now and hopefully the colour will add just a hint of interest. I’m also hoping it might be strong enough to use as the warp thread for my first woven project.
This is where I’ve been enjoying a spot of spinning in the sunshine.
Don’t be fooled by the tranquil setting… look what was in front of me!
More than a few splashes came my way!
Hope you’re enjoying some sunshine too.Becky
