I know right?! Two posts in one day….it’s crazy haha! (Especially since I have been so lax lately…)

In any event, I have discovered the art of spinning fiber into yarn, and I love it! Granted I’m not very good, but I love it all the same!

Here are a few pics of the wool fiber that I’m teaching myself to spin.

Again, it’s a little wonky…my drafting really isn’t there yet, but i was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the colorway that i created with Wilton food coloring and white vinegar.

My yarn is not very even, but the hope is to get really good at spinning on the Turkish spindle I’m using and then upgrade to a spinning wheel at some point.

I have some beautiful merino and silk that I’d like to try next…..

I posted some pics of the yarn after i dyed it, and then once it dried, and also in a braid, as well as a couple of pics of what i have on my spindle currently. Enjoy!
