The first finished project that I’d like to share with you today is a handspun twisted bouclé. This yarn was so much fun to spin! I used handspun Perendale wool in “Les Macaroons” colorway by Southern Cross Fibre, cream colored handspun BFL, and super kid mohair and silk to create this bouncy, bright, and super textured yarn. I made the bouclé loops longer so that they would twist back on themselves for a truly unique and fun look. This yarn would be perfect for an ultra cozy headband, or to add an interesting accent to knitting and crochet projects.
My second project to share with you is another handwoven bag created on my antique loom. I used local PEI wool for the warp and a beautiful hand dyed and handspun BFL wool/silk blend for the weft. It is fully lined with printed cotton batik and would be perfect for keeping your keys and phone in while on the go.
In other news, I popped out to visit my friends at Fleece and Harmony this morning and came home with some of Jen’s hand-dyed yarn and some of James Bond’s locks (he’s their handsome Border Leicester Ram). I’m already planning some fun new projects with my new woolly goodies!
Hope you’re all having a lovely week and that you’re finding some time for craft.
Happy Friday all!
