Project

April shower

I used merino x targhee fleece( handyed kiwi and lime). This represented the bright new leaves of spring. Sky blue domestic wool for the sky of course. The storm clouds are represented by natural grey and white English angora fiber and some hand dyed purplish grey locks. The rain is represented by pearl grey firestar. I layered all of these fibers onto hand carders and rolled them into puni style rolags with a pair of dowel rods. I spun my yarn super thin from these rolags being careful to manipulate the locks as i came upon them. Once finished spinning my Puni rolags in the s direction i wound my single into a center pull ball and plied it with itself in the z direction. I love coils spirals and barrels so i did add those wherever i thought they might be pretty.
