Handdyed merino wool.
What was your inspiration?
faded paint, partly cloudy skies on a soft spring day, blue and grey birds
What are you most proud of?
I love the cohesive nature of these yarns. One is spun thick and thin, one is thick and thin with a handspun autowrap, and one is a boucle' yarn. Every inch of yarn in this grouping is spun by hand. The superfine merino is sooo creamy smooth and soft.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make sure your merino roving drafts very easily and is in good enough condition after dyeing that it doesn't require fiber prep.
