This Week's Fiber Play!

 Wool Top from Wild Hare
Chain Plied or "Navajo Plied"--I have never used this technique before, but I really like
the appearance of the finished yarn.

Wool Top from Wild Hare.          Colorway: "Sailors Take Warning"
(I still need to take a pic of the finished yarn that I spun from this gorgeous roving!)

"Sailor's Take Warning" spun into a 2-ply yarn

I also had a great time teaching a drop spindle workshop at Wooly Belle this past Saturday. 

Check out my "Workshops and Programs" page for upcoming and available programs. 

I also hope to have some fiber & fiber-related items for sale in the near future.  
Check back for more information.

  1. They look so cool after you're done with them! Have you tried dying your own roving yet? I know you had mentioned wanting to do that.

  2. Hi Danielle,
    I am actually waiting for some undyed roving to show up at my house that I ordered! Then, I am going to try dyeing some of it. I have used natural dyes for years, but I am looking forward to using some modern acid dyes for the roving.

    1. Cool, I hope you blog about it when you do it. I'd like to see your creation!
