The Making of “Hebridean Heaven” handspun yarn

For a change I fancied using cool and sky-like colours for my latest skein – it is inspired by the great big skies of the Outer and Inner Hebridies of Scotland!

Rolags at the ready! Lovely airy colours of blue, ivory, grey and purple

I was drawn to all the blues, purple greys and palest ivories that I had.

I spun the yarn spun slowly on my Wee Peggy and then wound onto my niddy noddy before soaking and setting it with a weight to dry overnight!

Here are some pics of how it went.
