Decided to go back to spinning yarn in my spare time. Keeps me busy.
Managed to persuade my Dad to build me a hackle using some cheap plastic combs I bought off of ebay, so I could attempt to make my own blends.
These are the results of some tests with colour I managed to make with the DIY hackle.
Caramel is using an assortment of autumn colours of merino wool.
Mermaid uses different shades of blue/green, along with coloured silk waste and Anglelina fibre in Wisteria colour.
I think they’ve worked quite well, although I don’t think I’ll be using the silk waste again, it’s not very nice to spin with and falls out.
If anyone is interesting in buying any hand spun wool from me just email me.
