Fiber Friday, April 18

I got in a new brand of dyes this week, so I don’t have bunches to show you, but I hope you’ll enjoy them none-the-less!!

This is April Showers, which is a thick and thin art yarn I hand spun from roving I dyed in a gentle blue grey with bits of pink and purple.  I plied it with a gray thread and seed beads in blue, purple, and clear…both sparkly and pearlescent.

This purple and pink yarn is the result of the roving I showed you last week.  I ended up with about 203 yards, and I’m pretty happy with it.  My first ply was not nearly as good as my second, but that is how things go, right?

This is Cinnamon Toast, which is hand dyed on Superwash Merino & Nylon Sock Yarn.
