First up is some yummy handspun because, in my world, week without spinning is a week incomplete 😉 This was the May club shipment from Hello Yarn. It is 4oz of dreamy soft Rambouillet in “Shy Creature” colorway spun up as a bouncy worsted weight 2 ply. I’m really loving the colors and barber poling in this!
Second for today is something entirely new for me … madder root dyeing. I used 50g of madder root (soaked overnight) and a skein of locally grown yarn from Harmony Meadow Farm, which I pre-mordanted with alum and cream of tartar. I’m pretty happy with the resulting color and can’t wait to get kitting with it. I have some secret plans for it paired up with the skein I dyed using Comfrey. No peeks yet though 😉
Hope you have all had a fantastic week and that you found some time for craft.
Happy Friday all!
