Just a quick note with some bulky yarn, custom order for a dollmaker.
And one of my favorite new tools to demonstrate WPI (wraps per inch).
I’m off to a Fiber Retreat weekend, put on by Griffin Dyeworks, where I’ll be teaching and learning a variety of different spinning techniques. I hope to have many fantastic new photos for you when I return. Until then, enjoy these.
P.S. Here’s where I purchased the sheep yarn gauge: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Girlontherocks?ref=seller_info
Some quick photos of new yarn that I spun for myself: a Bulky yarn for a St. Patrick’s day party at a Goth club with a Tribal belly dance troupe. I’ll be wearing this in my hair tonight.
|The yarn has been separated into two ponytail holders and will be worn in my hair tonight.|
|Black natural merino wool blended with bits of naturally dyed wool, dyed wool locks,
sari silk threads, and wool blends with firestar sparkle threads
|Extremely bulky 2-ply yarn. Some thick/thin variation, the largest sections are almost 3/4-inch thick.|
