Last year I ordered a couple of pounds of some really gorgeous brown Shetland wool from Spunky Eclectic and went on a dying spree. Since this was my first time dying colored fiber, I decided that semi-solids would be the best bet and I was immediately hooked. I dyed every scrap of the fiber. Pictured above is 1.5 lbs of my experiments – the green I call “Sherwood”, the red “Rustic”, and the purple “Catawba”.
Keeping with the adventurous spirit this fiber seems to have instilled in me, I’ve decided to use it for my very first combo spin. I have 12 oz spun up and ready to ply. I’m quite excited and look forward to seeing what these will look like when combined.
I’m off to start plying!
