After a long break due to painting commitments I have got my mitts on fiber again.
This batt was carded on my friend Anne’s drum carder and has deep sunset colours and a mix of luxurious fibers
This time – no rushing – just blissful spinning.
My fave thing to do it colour blend using my hand held carders.
My hand held carders that I’ve had for 5 years and are very suited to my hands and usage now
I look at my bookshelves full of fiber tubes and pick a bit of this and a bit of that – mixing fibers and colours as I go.
I like my handspun to have a bit of boing in them so always add some cormo from my friend Anne (www.cariadfiberart.etsy.com)
I create over 9 rolags usually per single skein that I spin on my Wee Peggy original wheel.
I spend a long time making my rolags which are lofty and full of air
It is a joy to see the colours develop as I card – I never tire of this.
Then I lay them all out on a board by my side and pick up random rolags and spin.
I love the adventure of this and the unpredictable results of colour blends I get.
