I would like to show off the results of some fibre-related experimentation from last weekend!
Fun yarn I spun from some batts I drumcarded (pink wool, silk, cashmere, and some thread , though note the thread went in a the time of spinning the singles, NOT as part of plying).
Alpaca roving dyed with Weld (dye extract) and Ivy (locally picked berries I cooked up and made a dyebath out of)
Alpaca dyed with Logwood extract, and Ivy berry home-made dye
Merino dyed with Weld extract, Logwood extrace and Ivy berry home-made dye.
(All the natural dyeing was done using an alumm mordant and cream of tartar).
Thanks for looking!
