Don't spin out of control! Felicia Lo, founder of SweetGeorgia Yarns, shows you how to spin yarn confidently in the colors you've always wanted.
What materials did you use?
NZ Lamb wool top - dyed it myself
1) This part was taken apart into sections and then spun longdraw(ish). I could have gotten sharper colour sections if Id (navajo) plied it with shorter loops, but I wasnt really paying attention there. Theres more barberpole/mixing further along 2) Split down lengthwise, then drafted with a backdraw method, holding two sections so they didnt match colour. I was going for maximum marling here. I like the effect more than I thought I would. 3) Heavily pre-drafted but spun without splitting it up. Navajo plied with short loops.
